Peru: Exploring Machu Picchu

On a rare day when the weather is clear, it’s great to explore Machu Picchu in detail, climbing every hill, entering every building, and looking down from every cliff. The entire site contains a residential sector in the middle and the agricultural terraces on the slopes. There is also an upper town and a lower town, with a total of over 200 buildings. Of interest, there are several ritual stones in the heart of the city.
