Machu Picchu Luxury Tour

Machu Picchu Luxury Tour

Machu Picchu is one of the 7 wonders of the world most visited by tourists, has beautiful stone-based buildings, which were carved with much precision and detail, is the most important work for the Incas for having been built on a rugged mountain and inaccessible, divided into two large sectors, urban and agricultural separated by a large wall that descends the slope of the hill to reach the banks of the river Vilcanota. 

Due to the enormous cultural and natural attraction of the Inca citadel and its spectacular landscapes, in 1981 the Peruvian state declared it a Natural Protected Area. In 1983, UNESCO declared it as a Sanctuary and a place of World Heritage. The citadel of Machu Picchu is located northwest of Cusco, approximately 112 kilometers by train, between an impressive geography of steep mountains separated by narrow valleys and deep ravines. Machu Picchu is important, because in addition to its archaeological value, it has a great variety of ecosystems within its limits. Machu Picchu is surrounded by a mysterious nature and has kept many researchers confused for years. They have used many myths and symbols from the Inca culture to explain the position of many cities and fantastic temples of the Sacred Valley.

The mountain of Machu Picchu (and the same city that is located at your feet) and the mountain Huayna Picchu constitute a belt around this magical place. The high mountains around represent a second belt. The Incas believed that this place had been chosen by the cosmos to build a sacred city. In the Inti Raymi (June 24) appears a triangle in two concentric circles carved in the Intihuatana that points to Machu Picchu.
