Machu Picchu was another big tick off the bucket list. It’s an incredible place to visit.
Photo’s and TV don’t do it justice, you have to see it with your own eyes to appreciate the grandeur of the place.
It’s amazing to think Machu Pichu was built around 1450 by the ancient Inca’s. We were very lucky as we pretty much had the place to ourselves.
Where is Machu Picchu?
Where we stayed
Aguas Calientes is the nearest main town to Machu Pichu.
What we did
We went to Machu Picchu – obviously 🙂
That famous view.
It really is quite breathtaking.
I took a lot of photo’s here.
Everywhere you look there is a spectacular view.
Me and my lovely Nikon.
Llama photo bomb.
Looking for the angle.
Doing what llama’s do all day.
So lucky that Machu Pichu was virtually devoid of other people.
Do you come here often?
Looking down onto the Urubamba river.
Harassing the llama’s
Look at the head on that.
Everyone should buy llama socks when you visit Machu Pichu.
The workmanship and skill that went into building Machu Pichu around the time of 1450 – 1460 is mindblowing.
What are you looking at stupid human?
Again, that famous view.
Don’t mess with Mother Nature. This was an amazingly powerful torrent and quite spectacular to witness.
The town square in the evening.
Having a well-earned beer overlooking the square.
Nice socks, but they don’t last very long though. Don’t let that put you off. We tourists need to support these local communities and businesses.
