machu picchu
location: aguas calientes, peru
 
machu picchu is one of the seven wonders of the new world.

it’s an ancient site built by the incas in the 15th century and abandoned a century later. it’s located 7,970 feet above sea level in the andes mountains where it remained unperturbed and hidden to outsiders through the centuries until it was discovered by hiram bingham in 1911.

i heard that it would be a rewarding experience to get there on foot, but it comes with a price. it would be a strenuous uphill climb that takes hours or days depending on the route you choose. the best option for many is to take the train, which we did.
