On the way to Machu Pichu you will be surprised by the smart way the Inca used the land to cultivate! Not as beautiful as Machu Pichu but you definitely learn something about the past

We stopped here on our trek to Machu Picchu and will always remember the visit. It’s so hard to understand how the Incas could construct such impressive structures in such remote locations. The fact that you can only access the site by trekking there makes...More
