Machu Picchu in Peru

Machu Picchu is a heritage site in Peru that leaves people spellbound. It is located in a hilltop in the middle of the Andes in Peru. Some of the ruins that you should visit are the Temple of Condor, the Sun Gate, the Intihuatana, the Temple of the Sun and the Huayna or the “Peak”.

To get to see this wonder, you have to ride a bus from Aguas Calientes that can bring you directly to the ruins. However, if you fancy doing something different, hike your way up the Inca Trail. To do this, you must pre-book your hike with a tour agency at least 2 months in advance because the slots sell out fast. To make your trip even more memorable, after your trek, why not experience something truly extraordinary and take a visit to the inspiring Ayahuasca Retreat Center in Peru.

My bucket list is the world, and some day I might make it there.
