Machu Picchu was created by the Incan Empire and stands 2,430 m above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest, in an extraordinarily beautiful setting.
Needless to say that Machu Picchu is one of the most amazing places I have ever photographed. Photo’s don’t do it justice regardless of how good they are. You need to see it for yourself.
Go to Machu Picchu out of season in February. The weather is nice and there is hardly anyone there. If this had been high season there would have been thousands of people everywhere.
Get there early as you will need a full day. Take plenty of water and a packed lunch if you can.
Here’s a screen grab of some of the photographs I took in Machu Picchu:
