The famous Machu Picchu

visit machu picchu - peru - dancer with a backpackThe Machu Picchu, the unavoidable in Peru! For good reason, these ruins are amazing and full of energy. Here is the story of our visit to Machu Picchu.

We start our journey from Olantaytambo, we took a minibus from the Plaza del Armas. We paid 30 soles. The day before, we tried to book it in advance but it was always more expensive, no need to bother so. The bus took around 4 hours, on a road really narrow.

You get off at Hydro Electrica, the start of the walk to Aguas Calientes. It takes a bit more than 2 hours on the side of the railway. If you look closely when you cross the first bridge you can already see a small part of Machu Picchu, we only saw that on the way back. Read more

It’s been almost a month that we are in Peru now. We already saw so much and so many things happened! I had high expectations for Peru and it has not disappointed me. First I want to share with you what we saw in Cuzco and the sacred valley. This is where all the tourists are going, for good reasons, the area is full of archeological sites and amazing landscape. I had to make a selection of pictures, I took so many of them! Hope you like them as much as I do.
