Machu Picchu: one of the New Seven Wonders of the World
One sight in Peru never fails to take the breath away; one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, surrounded by cloud forest and hidden for many years before its miraculous discovery by Hiram Bingham in 1911. Machu Picchu is the ‘lost city’ of the Incas – a hidden citadel that captures, all who visit, leaving them spellbound. Hike the classic Inca trail and arrive at the Sun Gat at Intipunku, take the train, or choose an alternative trek which takes walkers off the main trail, still with beautiful views amid the subtropical rainforest. Whichever route you choose hiking the Inca trail is a once in a lifetime experience and your first view of the ancient site will stay with you forever.
