Zen Lovers: Machu Picchu

The 15th-century Inca ruins at Machu Picchu make up a panoramic citadel that is so hauntingly beautiful, you can’t help but find your inner peace just looking at it. Deep in the Sacred Valley, you’ll marvel at the simultaneous wonders of both human innovation and Mother Earth.

For many visitors to Peru and even South America, a visit to the Inca city of Machu Picchu is the long-anticipated highpoint of their trip. In a spectacular location, it’s the best-known archaeological site on the continent. This awe-inspiring ancient city was never revealed to the conquering Spaniards and was virtually forgotten until the early part of the 20th century. In the high season, from late May until early September, 2500 people arrive daily. Despite this great tourist influx, the site manages to retain an air of grandeur and mystery, and is a must for all visitors to Peru.

A great place to stay at is the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge.
