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. Put Machu Picchu at the heart of your travel plans by using our Peru online visit planner.
