The 'Lost City of the Incas' - UNESCO World Heritage-listed Machu Picchu
It may have graced the covers of a thousand magazines, but there is undeniable power in seeing the Machu Picchu ruins for the first time. Whether it’s after days hiking the trail, or a ride through the Sacred Valley – one of the world’s most spectacular rail journeys – to watch the clouds lift, the stupendous lost city gradually reveal itself, is a heart-soaring moment. The Incan genius for embellishing extraordinary landscapes with incredible structures reaches its zenith at Machu Picchu, while the domed peak of Huayna Picchu rising up nearby completes the scene perfectly. Simply one of the world’s unmissable sights.
