Welch mystische Ausstrahlung umgibt die sagenumwobene Inkastadt Machu Picchu auf 2.400 m. Leider ist ein Besuch der Anlage unmittelbar mit Massentourismus verbunden. Viele, ja die meisten, fahren mit Bussen direkt bis zum Eingang der archäologischen Stätte, was den Besucherstrom nur noch weiter ankurbelt. Aber es gibt auch eine wesentlich ruhigere und gleichzeitig abenteuerliche Variante, der einzigartigen Anlage einen Besuch abzustatten – die Besteigung des Machu Picchu Mountain.

A super cool hike starting near Chincherro and finishing in Lamay taking in a lesser travelled route, away from the tourist crowds and ending in the last Incan citadel of little Cusco. The views are incredible and the route was super quite when we went. Aside from a few villagers, we didn’t pass anyone else. Here is an overview via Insta: https://www.instagram.com/reel/Cl4U4U0vrGo/ Check the ‘getting there’ section for how to get to the hike.
