After 4 days and 3 nights of hiking the Inca Trail...

...we timed our arrival at fabled Machu Picchu to observe the brilliant morning sunrise over the mysterious abandoned Inca city.

This ancient Inca stronghold is mystically set in the granite mountains high above the Urabamba River

Machu Picchu is now one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and a must-see for any global traveler.
