In 2007, Machu Picchu was recognized as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Since then, the number of tourists visiting this magnificent Inca city built in the 15th century has grown exponentially. Unfortunately, so have the costs associated with a visit to Machu Picchu. Between trains, buses and entrance ticket, you are looking at paying around $240 per person. And that does not even take into account guide fees or the additional fees required if you want to climb Huaynapicchu.
Notwithstanding the aforementioned costs, Machu Picchu is certainly one of those sights you need to visit at least once in your lifetime. As impressive as the Inca city is, the surroundings are even more stunning.
Below are some (amateur) pictures I took on my recent visit to Machu Picchu. Hope you enjoy them!
