Machu Picchu is a landscape of great beauty nestled in the midst of the mountainous rainforest. Built around 1450-1460 during the time of the Great Inca Rulers, it is considered the most astonishing construction in the entire empire. Its walls and terraces give the impression of having been carved from the rock.
The archaeological sanctuary of Machu Picchu is located on the left bank of the Vilcanota River, at the Jusi Chaka pass, in the Machu Picchu district, Urubamba province, and the department of Cusco, 112 km from the city of Cusco.
The Inca city of Machu Picchu is situated at an altitude of 2,490 meters.
Machu Picchu is located in the subtropical zone, between the mountains of Machu and Huayna Picchu, protected by the snowy Salkantay to the south and the Veronica to the north, providing a very distinctive climate, with cool and warm temperatures, and rainy days depending on the season.
Best Time to Travel
The best time to visit Machu Picchu is from April to October. It doesn’t rain, and you can enjoy the best sunrise at its ruins without any problem.
First, you need to go to Cusco or Ollantaytambo and/or the Poroy train station and take the train to Aguas Calientes. You can also take the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Aguas Calientes does not have an airport, and there are no roads from Cusco to Aguas Calientes.
Via Inca Trail
One of the most popular alternatives to reach Machu Picchu is the Inca Trail. Undertaking this hike means being able to visit various archaeological sites and appreciate the beauty of its landscapes. This route is preferred by many tourists. On average, 15,000 people take this path each year, so tickets are limited to 500 people per day. If you are willing to take this route, you need to make your reservation well in advance.
The most traditional way is to travel by train from Poroy and/or Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes. There are regular services at various daily schedules. The first leg departs from Cuzco. As it enters the Sacred Valley, it runs parallel to the Urubamba River with beautiful landscapes.
It is simply spectacular, every space in it is fascinating no matter where you look. Within the Inca City, there are attractions that stand out from the rest:
The terraces are representative structures of the Inca Empire, representing a significant advancement in the agriculture practiced by this people. They created microclimates on the different levels of the mountain slopes where they were built. The citadel was likely self-sufficient.
It is one of the most attractive and surprising features of Machu Picchu. The Incas arranged it in a natural rock formation carved in the shape of wings alongside another rock carved like the head and neck of a condor. This construction is a three-dimensional representation of the Inca’s sacred bird, a symbol of power.
In the residential sector of Machu Picchu, two enclosures can be observed. The Royal Palace, the largest building, was constructed with fine masonry and had a special place. The Acllahusi was possibly where the virgins dedicated to religious practices lived, a finely constructed building made up of various blocks.
It is a mountain within the citadel. Climbing it allows you to contemplate unparalleled views of the entire sanctuary, as from its summit, you can see the Inca city and its surroundings in a unique way.
This structure with a semicircular tower is located in the religious sector. Inside the temple, there is a ceremonial altar carved in rock. Its walls have windows from which you can accurately observe the sunrise during the summer and winter solstices.
In this place, there are two prominent structures. The Main Temple, a precinct with three walls made of finely carved blocks. It is believed to have been the most important temple in the city. The Temple of the Three Windows, a beautiful stone structure with three walls, built and assembled with great skill. Three beautiful trapezoidal windows stand out, placed there for magical and religious reasons.
It is the most famous and enigmatic site in Machu Picchu. It is a carved one-piece sundial that casts shadows on its different faces in relation to the position of the sun and the different seasons of the year.
The mountain is one of the most attractive and popular places in Machu Picchu. Classic photos are taken from there. Climbing this mountain is an incredible adventure. When seen from below, due to its steepness, it feels quite dizzying, but when you reach the top, it’s the most unforgettable moment. However, it’s not the only one, as this mountain is also the Temple of the Moon.
