Description

Machu Picchu - Peru - South America


Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca site located 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) above sea level. Most archaeologists believe that Machu Picchu was built as an estate for the Inca emperor. Often referred to as the City of the Incas, it is perhaps the most familiar icon of Inca civilization. Tougher entrance rules were a measure to reduce the impact of tourism on the site. Entrance was limited to 2,500 visitors per day, and entrance to Huayna Picchu (within the citadel) was further restricted to 400 visitors per day, in two allocated time slots at 7am and 10am. Wayna Picchu. Towering above the north end Machu Picchu is this steep mountain. It is a steep climb, expect to be out of breath, and take care in the steeper portions, especially when wet, as it can become dangerous. There's a tiny cave near the top that must be passed through, it is quite low and a tight squeeze. Take care at the peak, it can be somewhat precarious, and those afraid of heights may want to hang out just below. Tickets to Wayna Picchu had to be reserved beforehand, you have to pay to climb Wayna Picchu, which is limited to 400 people per day, 200 at 7am, and 200 at 10am. The round trip is estimated to be 2 hours, however I took 2.5 hours to complete at a steady pace. I personally make an appearance in this video, a rare thing as I don't usually film mysel.
