Machu Picchu Peru Web Site
Machu Picchu, one of the new seven wonders of the world, is an amazing stone settlement in the Peruvian Andes built by the Incas.
Tourists from all over the world come to visit Machu Picchu. Facilities are well set up for the tourist. There is well prepared access from Cusco and you can arrive by train with a short minibus ride up the hill, or walk along the well-known hike along the "Camino de los Incas".

It used to be possible to visit Machu Picchu as a foreign tourist with little ceremony, but now it is normal for foreign tourists to be caught up in the "first class programmes".
I have several photos of Machu Picchu which I hope to put up on this web site. Please respect the copyright, and if you wish to use a photo for whatever reason, please contact me first.
If you have already been here, I'm sure you enjoyed it. And if you are thinking of going, I'm sure you will be amazed by what you see.
