Machu Picchu Tours, Travel & Backpacker Adventure
Adventure through sub-tropical jungle shrouded in mystery and littered with ancient paving stones to reach Machu Picchu; The Lost City of the Incas. Machu Picchu dates back to the 15th century, and is highly significant because the site remained unknown to the Spanish during the Spanish conquest. Machu Picchu is Peru's most popular tourist attraction. The Inca Trail was built as a road to reach Machu Picchu. Today, this is used for curious travelers to adventure to Machu Picchu.
See the amazing feats of the Incas as Machu Picchu has over 100 levels of stone steps, carved from a single block of granite! Machu Picchu was divided into three districts; the Sacred District, the Popular District, and the District of the Priests and Nobility (The Royalty Area). In the Sacred District, travelers can view sacred stone monuments that were dedicated to their greatest deity, Inti, the sun god. In the Popular District, travelers can adventure through the residential area of the lower-class people...ancient simple houses still remain. Tour through the intriguing Mausoleum in The Royalty Area. This was used for sacrifices and rites, and has ancient carved drawings. On your Machu Piccu adventure tour, travelers have the option to shorten or lengthen their trek on the Inca Trail, depending on your fitness levels and the amount of days you want your adventure to last. There are tours to incorporate Machu Picchu and allow travelers to tour the rest of Peru and its attractions, adventure through the Amazon, and explore South America.
