For many people, traveling to Machu Picchu is a dream come through. They long to go trekking on the Inca Trail and climb the Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu mountains which are on the right and left of the city respectively. The adventure and excitement one gets from visiting this popular world heritage site cannot be quantified by any means. So tell me, what are you waiting for?

I recently read of a couple’s travel to Machu Picchu and how fulfilled they felt at the end of their tour. And lately, many people seem to be more interested in hiking the high-ranked Inca Trail and admiring the beautiful scenery and panoramic views of this place in Peru. It is one of Peru’s tourist attractions, and you may ask, what exactly makes Machu Picchu a must-visit?

Archaeological Sites and Beautiful Scenery

The city has very incredible and ancient archaeological sites that tell you more about the Inca people, their history, and culture. Also, the mountains have heights you can’t help but explore, especially when you join a group of trekkers who intend to go hiking on them for two, three, four, five or more days. Although this Inca city was initially invaded in the sixteenth century, its rediscovery in the early twentieth century showed that it had authentic indications that human beings had originally lived there and nurtured the natural environment. The tropical forests, valleys, wildlife and birds, Andean communities and glaciated mountains are all beautiful bits of the city. Although there are several arguments as to what the city was, it’s apparent today that this place has become a tourism hub for people from all over the world who are seeking the opportunity to visit South America’s most popular ruins which in 2007 was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the world.

Best Vacation Spot

When you need a vacation, you can’t help but have Machu Picchu on your must-see list. Of all the places in Peru, South America, next to Lake Titicaca, Machu Picchu is the best place for you to take time off work. There are luxurious hotels such as Aguas Calientes where you can lodge, have delicious breakfasts, take hot spring baths and just relax in when you return from your hike. If you love nature and everything natural, you would love Machu Picchu because it has diverse and rich flora and fauna.
