The famous citadel of the Inca sits atop a scraggy mountain peak overlooking the valley that was sacred to those people. These ruins feature many temples and the famous terraced-gardens the Inca developed for agriculture in the Andes.

  • Accessible only via a narrow mountain path from Machu Picchu, the peak of Huayna Picchu rises above its counterpart below. Home to many of the temples of the ancient city, it provides one of the best views in Peru.
  • Located down the mountain from Machu Picchu, Mandor Waterfalls are an absolutely breathtaking hidden gem. Complete with botanical gardens, it is a relatively easy half-day's hike from nearby Aguas Calientes. Keep on the lookout for exotic birds and butterflies.
  • The Aguas Calientes Hot Springs, situated in the valley below Machu Picchu, are the perfect place to unwind after trekking through the mountains. Locals attest to the curative powers of these hot springs. Admission is $2.
  • Translated to English, the name means "Sun Door," and this gateway stands as the entrance to the ruins of Machu Picchu. Many visitors wake up before dawn so they can view the sunrise from this point.
