The Lost Cities in Peru

 Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, is a spectacular archaeological site discovered in 1911. We spent nine days traveling to Lima, and visiting the ruins of Cuzco, South America’s oldest continuously inhabited city, and Ollantaytambo, an Inca fortress near Machu Picchu. This was a rough trip and not for everyone. It is very dry and dusty, and hotel accommodations were below standard. If you are looking for adventure, want to experience new cultures, and have an interest in archaeological sites, this is the trip for you!
