Machu Picchu from the Guard House

One of the Wonders of the World, Peru


I thoroughly recommend you do the walk up to Machu Picchu from the town at 3:30am so you can be at the site for sunrise and be one of the top 400 people that can have access to Wayna Picchu, which is the big mountain you can see in the background. Remember to bring a torch, water and Coke (its perfect for dealing with altitude) for the early morning adventure.
