Great trip! Thank you, excellent crew.
Visiting Machu Picchu means entering a different dimension. This place emits a certain magical power not even the biggest skeptic can deny. Built within a breathtaking natural backdrop, it lets us humans feel small and humble. The ninth leader of the Tawantinsuyo territory, the Inca Pachacútec, probably had Machu Picchu built as a retreat. It could also be a fortress against the tribes from the rain forest which were threatening to take over the empire. This is a place dedicated to the sun, located high up in between the mountain tops, where holy virgins lived. No matter which interpretation you hear, Machu Picchu has left visitors and archeologists stunned. Everyone wonders: what were the reasons for the Incas to built such a monument in this magical yet almost inaccessible place. Manu Tours Peru offers you an unforgettable experience of Machu Picchu.
