Once upon a time (or 1911, actually,) a Yale professor traveled to Peru, hiked for six days and ultimately became the first Western scholar to experience the “lost city” of Machu Picchu. The famed ruins – inexplicably designed without so much as a hammer – continue to draw thousands of worldwide visitors. The best way to get there is to hop a LAN Airlines flight, relax, and think, “I am about to visit one of the Seven Wonders of the World.”
Over the years, IgoUgo members have hiked the ruins of Machu Picchu and shared their most inspiring photos. Today, we share our favorites with you. It’s like being there…but without all that hiking.
Although tours are readily available,the amount of visitors allowed to visit Machu Picchu per day is restricted to 400. It’s a fun challenge for the fittest among us, as the climb promises to tire even the most experienced climbers.
Today, we need a team of landscapers to repair our homes and gardens. The Incas essentially use their bare hands to construct an entire city.
