TOUR TO MACHU PICCHU

 THE HISTORICAL SANCTUARY OF MACHU MICCHU

Machupicchu is incomparable in its privileged beauty and spiritual strength; the city is hidden within tropics and was constructed with a privileged geographic localization that is combined with sacred mountains, running water, a celestial alignment that is almost perfect, an excellent stone mastery, and a number of terraces for agricultural work – it’s impressive. Machu Picchu is located in the middle of the mountains at about 2,400 meters above sea level; its temples, houses, agricultural terraces, cemeteries – everything is equally distributed. With all of its mysteries, Machu Picchu was particularly idealized and represents a sacred geographical center that today is considered to be a wonder of the world.

Visiting Machu Picchu is an unforgettable experience – the magic of its stone walls inspire a profound respect for its builders whose knowledge was like nothing found in this world. Machu Picchu is located in the middle of majestic mountains – at the brow of the jungle – 112 kilometers via train from Cusco; it is one of the most important archaeological monuments in the world and has been declared along with the city of Cusco by UNESCO as “Cultural Heritage of Humanity.”
