Machu Picchu is, deservedly so, one of the seven wonders of the world. Most people have seen photographs of it but few have seen it in real life, in all its glory.
Machu Picchu is Peru’s most famous Inca citadel situated on a mountain ridge 2,430 metres above sea level, it stretches over an impressive 5-mile distance with over 3,000 stone steps. It is believed to have been a royal estate or sacred religious site for Inca leaders. For hundreds of years the citadel was abandoned and its existence was only known to people living in the region until 1911 when it was discovered by American archaeologist Hiram Bingham.
