Things To Do in Machu Picchu

The Temple of the Sun
4.6/5

Historical Site
燃烧生命的小胖妞In ancient Egyptian architecture, there is no more impressive than the temple architecture than the pyramids. 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. 📝Travel tips 🛅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.

南美当地向导YolandaReceiving tourists to Hot Water Town, almost all the people who come here are to get up for the night and get up early to board Machu Picchu. You can choose a youth hostel or the luxurious Belmond Hotel at the foot of Machu Picchu Mountain. 【view】 Take a train from Cusco to Hot Water Town, which is the nearest town to Machu Picchu. It is located at the foot of the mountain at an altitude of 2040 meters. It is only 6 kilometers away from this world-famous World Heritage Site. It takes 1.5 hours to arrive. 【taste】 There are many special features in Shuhui Town: There are no other vehicles in the town except for the bus to Machu Picchu and a small number of work vehicles. Almost all residents in the town are engaged in tourism, either opening restaurants, hotels, or shopping malls. Souvenirs are sold in the market. It's a bit like Little Lijiang. Tourists can visit the handmade market here, buy a few Incan shawls, and wear them to take pictures in Machu Picchu the next day!
The Sacred Rock

Rock Monument
齐步走123If you simply evaluate the holy stone, it is just a big stone. But here in Machu Picchu, this stone has been given a sacred name, and it is also a must-pass when going to Machu Picchu, attracting everyone to stop and take pictures.

齐步走123The death of the Eagle Temple and the main temple is also in a high place in Machu Picchu, and the Eagle Temple is named after. It is because there is not a large stone similar to an eagle nearby, and this stone was obviously carved by ancient people.
