Machu Picchu near Cuzco, Peru

Machu Picchu, also known as “The Lost City of the Incas,” rests on a mountain ridge in the Urubamba Valley, over 8,000 feet above sea level. The city was originally built back in 1460 and was considered to be one of the main symbols of the Inca Empire. It was abandoned during the Spanish conquest and legend says that the land was forgotten until 1911 when it was rediscovered by an American historian known as Hiram Bingham.

There is evidence that the site may have been discovered 50-100 years earlier, but those discoverers only pillaged the site and left again. The site is now one of the most visited tourist attractions in Peru. The best time to visit is from June to August. May to November is mild with frequent coastal fog.
