The way the people under the INKA worked leaves you in AWE especially i sacred places like temples or in Princes places like the casa del ika.
The incredible stone work that and precision used when building the Temple of the Sun was stunning. Part of the Temple of the Sun stone work even extended into our Hotel, which was right across the street. To add as mentioned in another person review, it truly helps to have a great guide to explain everything. Gate1Travel.com does make sure... More
It was just amazing to see the incredible stone work and the precision of the window/shadow. The Inka's were amazing
This is a pretty cool structure if you are interested in archaeoastronomy. Windows line up with solstices, and you can see what happens if you come here on those dates.
One of the highlights of Machu Picchu, in the neighbourhood of the Temple of the Sun you find the most perfect specimen of Inca masonry, the Perfect Wall according to Hiram Bingham, and on the other side the sequence of fountains streaming down. The temple itself is not avcessible but you can get good views over the ropes.
Yes, it is amazing to see such a perfect and precise construction when you see sun through the windows only on certain moments. Feels like magic or something left from visitors from other planets:)
This is another example of great Inca construction. It makes for good pictures as it stands out amongst the other ruins. Definitely worth a visit during your tour of Machu Picchu. You can take pictures form many angles and they almost always look nice. However; good luck getting one with no people in it. It gets crowded.
Hiked up about 45 min or an hour to a beautiful view of Machu Picchu. Nice place at the top to rest in the shade and drink some water before heading back down.
