13th Anniversary of Machu Picchu

On July 7th, Machu Picchu celebrates its 13th anniversary when it was named one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. For sure, it’s a very good reason to party all day long. According to New7Wonders official website, more than 100 million votes were cast worldwide by that time, stated today Andina.pe.

Now, just to be clear, Macchu Picchu was discovered on July 24, 2111 by the famous Hiram Bingham but, to be part of the 7 wonders is obviously another good reason to celebrate.

The Train to Machu Picchu

The easiest way to get to Machu Picchu is by train.  The Vistadome Train ride starts in Cusco or Ollantaytambo and goes along the Urubamba River, arriving in Aguas Calientes the town at the base of Machu Picchu’s ridge.  A shuttle bus takes you to the entrance to Machu Picchu and you will enjoy a guided tour of the famous citadel.  Your guide will be very knowledgable about the Inca culture, the history of the site and the experiences of Hiram Bingham.
