Day 5

Today we take the train for a scenic train journey through the Urubamba Valley followed by a 20 minute bus ride ascent to Machu Picchu (2,280m), Lost City of the Incas. For centuries Machu Picchu was buried in jungle until the American historian Hiram Bingham stumbled upon it almost by accident in 1911. Although little is still known about the ‘lost city of the Incas’ it is obvious, by the quality of the stonework and the abundance of ornamental sites that Machu Picchu must have been an important ceremonial centre. After a guided tour and lunch you are free to explore the ruins on your own.
