- Machu PicchuJan 30, 2013
The secret to Machu Picchu is to wake up early: either you walk to the top of the hill and the entrance to the sacred city from Aguas Calientes (you have to start walking by 4 AM, but it's a thrill) or you take the first bus. That's the only way you're gonna secure your spot for climbing Wayna Picchu mountain. And you haven't really been to Machu Picchu, if you have not see it from the Wayna top.

Unreal. A magnificent and ancient structure in the middle of an incredible setting. Come here at some point in your life and have this encounter change it forever. (Preferably via the Inca Trail, but there are more comfortable means of getting here.)

I am very hard to please and is usually tough on rating things...but Machu Piccu took my breath away. It was worth it to trek 4 days, and wake up at 4 am to climb those stairs and make it by sunrise to see this magnificent place. Even though there were tons of people there, it still felt surreal to be in such a magical place, knowing this was hand built stone-by-stone. You MUST go before they close it off to the public. right now you can still freely roam around almost the entire area.

One of the Seven Wonders of the World and it certainly is. The Jewel in Peru's crown, and after four days trekking across the Andes on the Inca trail, and arriving early morning at the Gate of the Sun, it was truly magical. The magnificent Vista we'd arrived at was simply breathtaking. This 15th century Inca site is as beautiful and enchanting now, as it was during the Inca Empire.

Many of the wonders of the world have been over-hyped. Machu Picchu exceeded all my expectations. An amazingly beautiful city that felt magical. One of the top places in the world I've visited.

I have been to the Great Wall, Borubador in Indonesia, the Pyramids, many other great sites, and Machu Picchu. Of them all, Machu Picchu was by far the most impressive. It's as much about the journey up to the ancient city as it is seeing it -- the train ride from Cusco to Aguas Calientes was brilliantly charming. Aguas Calientes was a magical small town of shops, restaurants, museums, and hostels, bustling with life and culture all the same. Finally arriving to Machu Picchu is the climax of this whole phenomenal experience. When you get there you truly see that it is out of this world. You wonder how these people got there much less built an entire city in one of the most scenic spots in the world. Truly epic, please go if you have the chance.

Machu Picchu is the most impressive and important urban development of the Inca Civilization in Latin America. This archeological treasure is set atop of approximately 2500 meters above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest on the eastern slopes of the Andes. The visit requires an hour flight from Lima to Cusco; 3.5 hours train ride from Cusco to Aguas Calientes followed by a 30mins bus ride or a few days hike on the Inca Trail to the summit. The site is as mesmerizing as remote and serene — one that remains in memory for a lifetime!
