Machu Picchu

The realisation of a dream and a big tick for the Bucket List

Taken at sunset after 10 hours on the mountain.

Heavy rain for an hour at 3pm cleared the ruin out! much to my delight.

Enjoy!

Thanks. Yeah was worth spending the full day there! was great with hardly anyone there at sunset. Though it was very cloudy and only got the sun light for about 30 seconds!

up on the top terraces near the entrance to the trail for the Incan draw bridge.

Or if you dont know where Machu Picchu is it is in Peru

I must travel there. How long is the hike to that point? Looks like a road in the bottom left corner.

If you take the easy way, it is about a 10 min walk from where the Bus drops you off. Good spotting in the corner, that is actually a river with a train track next to it.
