The city of the Incas is the main attraction of Peru and moreover the most visited site on the continent. I take you on a walk around Machu Picchu in Peru and tell you a bit about the history.

No, I don't walked the Inca trail or the alternative Salcantay trail to get there. Instead of this I hiked the Choquequirao trail before going by train to Aguas Calientes. After a short night I got up early and hiked all the way up to be one of the first at the entry.
Everything worked out fine and I had a lot of time to walk around and enjoy the site as much as possible. The buildings and constructions are really impressive and the location the Incas chose to build this city is breathtaking. Today a lot of tourists make their way up there all year round – for a good reason!
