Good to know
Famously enough, Machu Picchu is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. And, who are we kidding, you probably came to Peru to see it! The mountain holds a grand amount of Incan ruins. When visiting, please be respectful of the artifacts, the animals (Llamas and alpacas, of course!) and the native people near you. Most of all, make sure to prepare for the high altitude of the mountain. When at Machu Picchu, climb slowly, breath deeply, and drink lots of water.
