A lot of things can be said about Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas. And I'm not going to elaborate on this well-known Wonder of the world site here. Only to show a few photos from this unmissable destination traveling inland Peru. We didn't walk the Inca Trail as it was fully booked, but rather took the train from Cuzco to Aguas Calientes, and the local bus up the hill to Machu Picchu from there.
