Introduction to Machu Picchu.
Known worldwide for its impressive architecture and landscape, Machu Picchu is a must for any visitor to the country. Every corner of these beautiful ruins is full of intrigue and shows the brilliance of the Inca imagination.

Now it receives thousands of visitors every year who clamor to see the citadel with their own eyes. Even after exploring the ruins, it is hard to imagine how they were built ( salkantay trekking ). This always leaves visitors with a great respect worthy of the Inca Empire, which although it collapsed as a result of Spanish arms and diseases more than four hundred years ago, still leaves its mark on the society and culture of modern Peru. To see this empire at its best, take a tour of Machu Picchu as part of your vacation in South America ( Salkantay trek ).
Geography and climate of Machu Picchu : Machu Picchu is located in the convergence between the mountain and the jungle in the province of Cusco, Peru. 2,450 meters (7,710 feet) above sea level. The city rests between two mountains high above the valley of the Urubamba River. It is strategically located with steep slopes on all sides and an insurmountable mountain standing behind it. It was visited by the Incas from Cusco using the Inca trail.
The amazon peruvian and and amazon have 2 main seasons the season of rain and the season dry the season of rain is between october and april with the dry season that begins gerelly between may and september during the dry season temperatures can work from anywhere between 12 c , (50 F) night through the 30’S C (Hight 80S f) during the day ( inca trail ) .
It is not surprising that the dry season is the best time to travel to Machu Picchu and this coincides with the summer holidays in . Europe and North America . July and August are the busiest months and to avoid large crowds, people should try to travel to Machu Picchu outside of these months.
Transportation from Machu Picchu Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu Pueblo) For those looking to spend more time in Machu Picchu, or get to the ruins early in the morning, a stop in Aguas Calientes is almost indispensable. In fact, the city was built almost entirely for this purpose and this is where all the train services from Cusco and the Sacred Valley travel ( inca trek ) .
Transportation of Machu Picchu: There are several kinds of trains that will take you from Cusco or Ollantaytambo to the station in Aguas Calientes; the trip usually lasts approximately 4 hours from Cusco and 2 hours from Ollantaytambo ( inca trails ) .

The alternative service of Vista dome allows travelers to enjoy a spectacular panoramic view along its route through large windows located on all sides of the wagons. Snacks and refreshments are offered during the trip and entertainment is also offered. A more affordable option is the service for backpackers, which still has fantastic views, although not with the same comfort and service in your trips ( machu picchu ) .
History of Machu Picchu : It is believed that the date of the construction of Machu Picchu was around 1430. Many theorists think that it was abandoned less than 100 years later and that the region was uninhabited at the time of the Spanish conquest, perhaps as a result of the onslaught of Small ( inaka trail ) . The smallpox that arrived in Peru before the Spaniards. This depopulation would explain in part the inability of the conquerors to easily track the site and remained intact and invisible to Europeans for centuries. The fact that it was exempt from Spanish looting makes it one of the most complete sets of Inca ruins machu picchu in the country.
Almost 400 years after the fall of the Incas, Yale scholar Hiram Bingham was taken to the ruins by locals in the area during his search for the last Inca outpost of Vilcabamba. At first he thought he had found his prize, and understandably, but after further investigation it became clear that this was not the case. In fact, Bingham had already visited what is now believed to be Vilcabamba or salkantay trekking , but he had discarded these ruins since he was not aware of its extension, which today is still enveloped by the thick jungle to machu picchu .
Since its discovery of Machu Picchu ( salkantay higt ), the site has been cleared and its profile has increased dramatically. Now it is considered to be the most important archaeological site in America, and one of the most important in the world ( huayna picchu ). Archaeological discoveries continue to be made around the site, and its historical importance is recognized by UNESCO, which declared it a World Heritage Site in 1983. It has also been named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and has become a tourist extremely popular destination attracting crowds of people every day ( salkantay trek ).
So, why exactly was Machu Picchu built? Thousands of theories have been given in an attempt to answer this question. These range from having importance as a sacred religious city to being a high security prison. The most likely explanation, however, is that it was built as a spiritual and ceremonial retreat for the Inca Pachacútec during an expansionist period of the Inca . Empire in the mid-15th century. In its heyday, it is even thought that this was the center of a buzzing economic region that could have been populated more than just inside the city to machu picchu .
Design of Machu Picchu Regardless of its purpose, what is clear is that a high degree of intelligence was devoted to the careful planning and construction of the Inca citadel. A more detailed examination of the ruins reveals that much thought was given to the different elements of the city and their arrangement in relation both to each other and to the surrounding natural environment.
Machu Picchu is divided into two sections by a central plaza covered with grass. In general, to the east of the square there are a variety of structures of religious importance. On the western side they are mostly civil structures that would have been the living room of the workers in the city ( huayna picchu ).
Religious structures of Machu Picchu :One of the most fascinating aspects of the ruins is the great concentration of important religious structures. These indicate that the site almost certainly had some kind of religious significance. Most of the main structures are concentrated around the Sacred Plaza ruins machu picchu .
Temple of the Sun to machu picchu : The importance of this temple is evident at the beginning, since it has the most immaculate and precise stone masonry that can be found throughout the site and is the only part of the ruin that has a curved wall. However, the true meaning of the temple of the sun lies in its alignment with the heavens. The central stone of the temple is at an angle with an adjacent window in such a way that the light of dawn at the winter solstice in June illuminates it. This has led archaeologists to believe that the temple could have acted as an astronomical observation center.
Temple of the three windows: Perhaps the most striking part of the ruins, the temple of the Three Windows, is another testimony to the geometric precision of Inca architecture. It is also a wonderful example of how its architecture echoed the surrounding environment: each of the three open trapezoidal windows frames a separate peak on the horizon.
Main temple: This is called due to its size and complexity and it is above other areas of the citadel. A diamond-shaped stone is incorporated into its center, which is said to represent the constellation of the Southern Cross. It includes a secondary temple called Sacristy where it is believed that the priests were prepared before performing sacred rites and ceremonies.
intihuaTana: Also known as “the sun’s binding post,” this magnificent carved rock was symbolically linked to the sun on the winter solstice. It is believed that this stone and similar stones were used to make astro logical observations and to calculate important phases of the year. Archaeologists continue to explore the various angles and surfaces of the rock to deduce how this Inihuatana and other similar were used in this regard ( ika trails ) .
