Machu Picchu


Machu Picchu tour! We started the day early, as we wanted to reach the Incan City before the masses of tourists arrived. And there we were, 7 am, sunrise and Machu Picchu. That was the very first time I had ever witnessed a wonder! Salute to the Incas for building something this amazing on the 15th century. It was magical to walk around this ancient city, to visit temples, palaces, priest houses, a sundial, the industrial sector and the farming fields. Machu Picchu is one of the most bio-diverse places on the world, surrounded by sacred natural elements, such as the Willkamayu River and the Sacred Mountains or Apus that protect this wonder of the modern world. After our 3 hours tour we were left alone and were told to take the maximum of this magical place. And this is exactly what we did! I must admit – being surrounded with something like that I totally forget about the camera. Luckily, the essential tourist photos were still taken. After wandering around, napping in a shade, patting llamas and secretly following other’s private tours it was time to head back to Aguas Calientes, take a train and go back to Cusco where our wonderful journey came to an end.
