Machu Picchu Travel destinations Peru – History

Machu Picchu

About 120 km from Cusco, where mountains and jungle merge, lies one of the greatest creations of mankind in the midst of an overwhelming landscape: Machu Picchu, the mysterious city of the Incas, which was never discovered by the Spaniards. There is no road connection to Machu Picchu. But you can easily get to your destination by train or like the ancient Incas: on foot. And if you don't want to share the walk to Machu Picchu with many other tourists – there are also other, little-used paths.
