Arguably one of the most well-known highlights of South America is the UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu
. A maze of dry-stone walls and pristine terraces adorn this remote, grassy plateau set high up in the Andes Mountains of Peru. Whether you walk the Inca Trail
or arrive by coach, nothing will prepare you for the moment that you catch your first glimpse of these majestic archaeological ruins.
"A surprisingly emotional experience. The breathtaking views are best taken in up high, away from the crowds around the main site. Looking down at the ruins balancing on a clifftop, who could fail to be impressed by this ancient feat of construction?" Carmel, Product Manager
