Peru Machu Picchu, lower western terraces view

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
The ruined city in Peru might be the most famous place in the country. As one of the new seven wonders of the world, this ruined city lives up to everything. A must for any visitor to the country. The city knows of incredible architecture and cleverness of construction you convince.

Photography Tips

Use an ultra-wide angle for the sunrise, or stitch together several wide-angle images into one big panorama to cover everything.

Travel Information

You will reach the town of Aguas Calientes only by train. From there you can walk a trail that will take you 40-60 minutes, depending on your walking speed. You should buy tickets beforehand, otherwise, you won't get up there. Alternatively, there is a bus to the gates of the city, which takes about 20 minutes. Again, book your tickets early.

Extra to this picture: Go the way more down from the upper to the lower terraces and turn your view to the right site. There you will see these smaller terraces that look like a theatre.
