Machu Picchu

(4.4/5 based on 22,000+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, nature, trails
A symbol of the Incan civilization, the abandoned city of Machu Picchu represents a must-see on a Peru vacation. At 2,340 m (7,970 ft) above sea level, the majestic structure dominates the picturesque landscape of the lush Rio Urubamba valley, and blends in naturally with the mountain ridge its nestled on. The World Heritage Site dates back to the 15th century, but wasn't discovered until 1911, almost half a century after the Incas left. Nowdays, nearly 2,000 daily visitors take a tour of Machu Picchu, its mysterious structures and scenic surroundings still fascinating travelers from all over the world. Plan the details of your Machu Picchu holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Peru family vacation planner.
