Wow! Far exceeded my expectations. Genuinely remote wedged between the high Andes and the start of the jungle of the Amazon basin. Well worth a visit or two!
Probably one site that is on everybody's list. Get there early in the morning for photographs that capture minimal tourist traffic.
Breathtaking, utterly breathtaking! When you arrive in the town of Aguas Calientes you must get in line for the bus ride up the mountain. If you are like me, you'd be terrified of the bus jackknifing up. I'd recommend getting the bus up and walking back down. You'll save a little bit of cash, and it will be a great memory. Machu Picchu itself is absolutely beautiful. The history, the view, you just cannot beat it. Just don't forget your sunscreen.
Machu Picchu is beyond words! It was a magnificent experience and out of this world.
