Seeing all this history is truely awsome and unbelievable. You just have to sit and take it all in to wonder that you are really there. As other Machu Picchu ruins, take water, hat, walking shoes. Must be able to climb steps, and be fit.

Some of the best preserved buildings in Machu Picchu. Of course such a great example of Inca architecture. Hopefully you’ve done enough looking on your own to not learn much new from me. No words could fully explain this wonder anyways.

Well preserved ruins of more buildings at Machu Picchu. This area is so remarkable as it is part of the temple. Ask your guide to explain it and good idea to read up about it before going.
