MACHU PICCHU ADVENTURE - BIKING AND TREKKING EXPERIENCE

Machu Picchu. Imbued in a magical silence,120km (74mi) away from Cusco, on the slopes above the Urubamba River, lies one of the world`s most extraordinary archaeological sites: Machu Picchu (2400m / 7872ft). Is probably the most familiar symbol of the Inca Empire. It is thought that the city was built by the Sapaq Inca Pachacutec, starting about the year 1440,and was inhabited until the Spanish conquest of Perů in 1532. Archaeological evidence (along with recent work on early colonial documents) shows that Machu Picchu was not a conventional city, but a country retreating town for the Inca nobility. The site has a large palace and temples dedicated to Inca deities around a courtyard, with other buildings for the supporting staff. It is estimated that a maximum of only 750 people dwelt in Machu Picchu at one time, and probably only a small fraction of that number lived in the town during the rainy season and when none of the nobility were visiting.
Machu Picchu, its name comes from the ancient Quechua word that means “old mountain”. This site was built entirely of stone, using every space in harmony with functionalism. Machu Picchu has been known as the “lost city of the incas”.
The most common way is to take the train to Machu Picchu in the morning, explore the ruins and in the afternoon, returning to Cusco. And other better option is to stay overnight in Aguas Calientes in order to get very early at the complex.
Machu Picchu is a trip very deep towards the serenity of the soul, to the eternal fusion with the cosmos. There we are able to feel our own fragility. It is one of the greatest marvels of South America. A resting place of butterflies at the epicenter of the great circle of life. "One more miracle”, as the poet Pablo Neruda wrote.
