Machu Picchu is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world, and without a doubt the most popular tourist attraction in all of Peru. The Incan citadel was formally rediscovered in 1911 by American explorer Hiram Bingham. In addition to being included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, this impressive landmark is also considered to be one of the New Seven Wonders of the World due to its pristine condition.
The Citadel can be reached via the Inca Trail, the large-windowed Vistadome train, or the luxurious Hiram Bingham train. Those looking for a more remote and extended lodge-to-lodge hiking or equestrian experience may enjoy the Salkantay trail. The stunning and original view of a vanished empire is yours no matter which path you take. In order to get a bird’s-eye view of Machu Picchu, you might want to climb Huayna Picchu, the second hill nearby. There is a daily cap of 400 hikers, which will not only offer a majestic view but you’ll feel like you’re one of the few there.
With a private guide, you can skip the lines and have an adventure that suits your needs. Choose between Inkaterra’s Machu Picchu Pueblo and Belmond’s Sanctuary Lodge, both of which are located close to the park’s entrance and feature lush, verdant surroundings.
In April and May, the rainy season has ended, the mountains are green, and it isn’t as crowded as it is in July and August, making it one of the best times to visit Machu Picchu. At the end of June, locals and tourists alike gather for the Festival of the Sun (Inti Raymi). The months of May through October are typically dry and clear, with cool evenings.
