I've been wanting to visit this place ever since I saw a documentary about it on National Geographic. It is truly a wonderful sight to see! You will be amazed at what the Incas have built with what little technology they had. The more you learn about the place, the more fascinated you become. Everywhere you look is very picturesque....

We ended our Inca Trail trek at Machu Picchu and felt a real sense of achievement. We would recommend doing it this way if you can. Machu Picchu itself is very impressive, particularly when you see it for the first time at the Sun Gate. Our one issue was the sheer number of visitors. When we actually entered the site... More

This is absolutely must see location of ancient Inka's. I was in Lima for vacation so I flu to Cusco first and stayed in hotel, can't remember name at this time and I was surprised that they have oxygen tanks in rooms. Soon I discovered why. Cusco has elevation of 11152 ft(3600m). During the night I felt like I don't... More

There are many wonderful places to explore in Peru, and Machu Picchu is one that is really beautiful to see. There is a lot of hiking and climbing there so be prepared in advance with good hiking boots or at the least good tennis shoes. Definitely bring a good camera for pictures to capture the beauty of the ruins and... More

I've been to many places around the world but Machu Picchu takes the cake as of right now. First things first, get to the bus stop that takes you to the mountain top early. I cannot stress that enough, the lines got packed QUICK and we had to wait about 45 minutes to board a bus. There is a restroom... More

My wife and I went in late November and the weather was great. I was scared because of many reports that it could rain (non-stop rain was projected) but besides an occasional rain every once in a while (which would last for a few minutes) it was not bad at all. Make sure to go early so that you can... More

Machu Picchu was one of my must do before I depart this earth and I am pleased to say that I ticked it off. It was a very pleasant experience and well worth the time, cost and effort. It is a long way with flights etc. but, worth it in the end. Amazing structure and building work and the setting... More

I know this is a bucket list for many but if you are going to Peru, think smaller! So much history and so many other places to visit! Look at the number of people visiting and the amount of time it takes to get here! I would say, stay in the sacred valley, visit other runs nearby... unless of course... More

Visiting Machu Picchu has always been in my bucket list and so I decided to solo travel throughout Peru after failing to find someone to travel with. I must say if you're traveling to Peru, visiting Machu Picchu is a must. I can't find words to describe Machu Picchu except that it was breathtaking! As a first time solo traveler... More
