The Lost City of Machu Picchu in Peru is believed to have been established between 4000BC-1500AD and built by Inca and pre-Inca civilizations. It stands 2,430 m above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest and takes some climbing dedication to get there. Have you made the trek?
Machu Picchu in Peru stands 2,430 m above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest, in an extraordinarily beautiful setting. It was probably the most amazing urban creation of the Inca Empire at its height; its giant walls, terraces and ramps seem as if they have been cut naturally in the continuous rock escarpments. The natural setting, on the eastern slopes of the Andes, encompasses the upper Amazon basin with its rich diversity of flora and fauna.
