凹凸曼和小伙伴Machu Picchu Wonderland in the Mist
📍Location: Cusco Spa Town, Peru
🚌How to visit: Cusco takes a train to Aguas Calientes. There is a minibus to Machu Picchu in the town. It takes about 30 minutes to walk on the winding road. The one-way fare is $12 and the round trip is $24. The minibus ticket window and minibus operating hours are 5:00A.M.~21:50 P.M. A bus takes about 10-15 minutes, with 30 people per bus.
🔺It is not recommended to catch the first and last trains. Machu Picchu is often foggy and the sunrise is not so easy to take pictures. There is no need to deliberately do it.
🎫Ticket: S/158.13 (including handling fee) It is recommended to book tickets on the official website machupicchu.gob.pe one month in advance. The website is unstable, so be patient, try a few times, and persevere. Remember to print it after payment is successful! This is the ticket to enter the scenic spot!
⌚️Play time: regular 1.5 hours. It all depends on the weather. You usually have to wait for the light to get a good photo. This is the waiting time outside of the itinerary.
🛅Luggage storage: Because you want to protect the historical sites, you must have a silicone protective cover under the trekking poles. If you don't have it, you can't bring it into the scenic area. The door storage fee is S/3. Although there are no particularly dangerous sections in the scenic area, and the altitude is 1,000 meters lower than that of Cusco, you can install it lightly. The less things the better.
🌦The weather in the mountains is uncontrollable, so wish yourself luck before you travel. However, the immortal version of Machu Picchu also carries the Holy Light, and Machu Picchu is Machu Picchu. The first half of our journey was cloudy and the second half was rainy.
🚻The original ecological monument means that there is no such sign except for the entrance and exit.
🦙Machu Picchu mythical beasts appear, and most of them have famous brands on their ears.

Temple architecture is an important carrier of Egyptian civilization, it reflects the development level of ancient Egyptian society civilization, condenses the intelligence of ancient Egyptians, and contains many connotations of ancient Egyptians' religious beliefs, national aesthetics and cultural symbols. Most of the Egyptian temples were built for the worship of the sun god.

凹凸曼和小伙伴New to Cusco City Guide
📍Geographical location: high altitude area! Peru Cusco, the city is about 3,310 meters above sea level.
✈️ Transportation: Cusco airport code CUZ (full name: Aeropuerto Internacional Teniente Alejandro Velasco Astete), don’t be afraid of the long name, no matter how it changes, Cusco is just one airport, whatever you call it. )
🚕Airport➡️City center: 10 Peruvian Sol, but some drivers will increase the fare according to the number of people. Four people are likely to charge 20 Peruvian Sol, which is almost 5 Peruvian Sol per person.
🔸When you first enter Cusco, you will have some altitude sickness, rapid heartbeat, lethargy, constant yawn, dizziness, and you should get used to a slow pace of life in high altitude areas.
🔸If you get off the plane and take the itinerary directly, you can arrange a city tour, mainly around the Plaza de Armas in the city center. The tour time is almost the time for taking pictures. The overall situation is relatively easy; if you choose the Inca Sacred Valley salt field line and need to climb, it may feel powerless for travelers who have not yet adapted to the plateau environment.
🔺Of course, if you have good physical strength and enough time, you can run the Sacred Valley Salt Field first and then the city line.
🔸There are many restaurants near the Plaza of Arms, and there are many cafes, and the tastes are also good.

Located high in the Andes mountains of Peru, Machu Picchu is now believed to have been a sacred royal retreat for the Incan rulers. Built in the 15th century AD and abandoned less than a 100 years later, the remote site continues to amaze with its perfectly joined, mortarless, intricate stonework. Huge multi-ton blocks of stone are perfectly joined with each other, without the use of mortar or cement.
Peruvian Rainbow mountain, 5200 meters above sea level, less oxygen, it's literaly breathtaking
yeah it's hard to breath when you have to reach to the top of the mountain by some kilometers walk with less oxygen on the air, then the scenery is also "breathtaking". But when you reach the top, it paid off. You will not regret.

#tripaway The rainbow mountain in Cusco, Peru is an amazing destination. Roaming herds of alpacas and astonishing surroundings made this experience even more unique. The early morning start and the challenge of hiking over 4000 meters of altitude it's totally worth it.
Visiting my last ancient world wonder was no cheap feat. Of course, there are less expensive ways to arrive to the citadel but I prefer speed and efficiency so I can maximize my trip. Here's the breakdown of how I did it and what it costed me in USD.
I flew into Cusco airport and took a $30 Uber to Ollantaytambo so I could use that as a base. The town itself has some Inca sites to explore but I opted not to. I just wanted to be close enough to the @qhispikay.glamping site and the train station.
Everything about your visit is pretty much time stamped. I suggest you book online in advance so you can choose the best train times for you before they get sold out (because they will). There are two trains you can take; PeruRail and Inca Rail. They offer slightly different times so it gives you a bit more options which is good. My train ride there was $104 (higher class) and coming back was $81 (slightly lower class). You ABSOLUTELY MUST have your passport on hand to board the train. Don't forget this!
After the 1.5-2h train ride, you'll arrive at the base of Machu Picchu in a town called Aguas Calientes. From here, I met my English speaking guide ($70 for groups up to 8 people) and he led me to where I needed to catch the bus ($32 round trip) for a very twisty but epic ride up to the entrance of Machu Picchu. Once there, the only restrooms are outside of the entrance. There are no in and out privileges on a basic ticket ($65) so refresh yourself before you go inside. I recommend purchasing a ticket to have lunch at the buffet once you're done exploring ($26). The food was very good!
Lastly, you have to be VERY mindful of the time you leave Machu Picchu because the line up to catch the bus to go back down can be like a mile long. I waited just over an hour just to get onto the bus to ultimately catch my train back. Total cost with the train can easily be $350-$400. I hope you found this helpful!

Machu Picchu is absolutely one of the place must visit in my life, finally accomplished the mission! What is your bucket list?
Machu Picchu is an Incan citadel set high in the Andes Mountains in Peru, built in the 15th century and later abandoned.
One of my most memorable experiences to date from my all time favourite country! Per left me absolutely speechless!
"The inheritance of the Inca civilization, the incredible military fortress"
Some people say that Cuzco City is seen from the air, it is like a cougar, Sasavaman is his head, and the ancient city of Cusco is his middle The nobles home is his tail. In the first chapter of today, let's take a look at the head of the "cougar" - Sasavaman (also known as "Sax Sewaman").
Sasawaman is a Stonehenge. It is built on the mountain. It is a golden soup that guards the safety of the ancient city of Cusco. After several major earthquakes, many buildings collapsed, but it still stands proudly. Proud of the Quartet.
Into the scenic area, I saw a row of megaliths displayed there, these boulder seem to silently tell the glory of the Inca civilization. Entering the Stone Array, the first thing you see is an open area surrounded by small hills and terraces. Standing on a high hill overlooking the distance, you can see the densely populated houses on the hillsides. It is the ancient city of Cusco. Some Indian women in the ancient city took pictures with alpaca and tourists.
Going along the walls of the stone array, fingers touched every stone in the stone wall. Stone walls vary in size and shape. Like other Inca stone buildings, how to build it is still a mystery. It is difficult to insert a piece of paper in the middle of many stones. It's hard to imagine how to make this piece of stone spliced so many years ago without any adhesive. What's even more amazing is that a whole stone slab is built with stone. There are more than 300,000 pieces of stone, big and small, and there are many boulders weighing hundreds of tons. How to transport them and put them together? A piece of pieced together into a stone array.
After walking through the stone wall and going up through a stone door, it is a neat step. When you walk up, you can see the original foundation and shape. The center of the ancient building is a circular platform that extends towards the surrounding layers. It is said to have been a round tower-shaped building with a specially constructed platform inside, and the platform is connected to a labyrinthine passage. One or more of them lead to the tunnel.
We have not been able to interpret how huge stones are transported, nor can we detect what process is used to polish stones. If the Spanish colonists did not destroy the Inca civilization, then we might be able to explore the secrets of this civilization from other aspects, and solve many of the mysteries of the present, but history is history, and its value lies in its inability to replicate. !
Transportation: 1 From the Arms Square in Cusco, it takes less than half an hour to get to the foot of the mountain. 2 2 km from the ancient Peruvian city of Cusco, can be chartered to go.
Tickets: 90 Sol, but you can buy scenic spots in the mountains, just 180 Sol.
Opening time: Monday to Sunday 7
