In the 15th century, Machu Picchu was known to be a fortress ruled by the great rulers hailing from Incan. During this time, Incan Empire was the biggest empire of its time which ruled pre-Columbian America. The Incans regarded this land as their holy retreat for their royals. This fortress rests on the peak of mountain range called the ‘Andes Mountains’. However, the Incan rule came to an end when the rulers abandoned the fortress after ruling for 80 plus years.
This historical site is well preserved and the tourist attraction there is the complex stonework which is intertwined with the heaviest blocks of stones. The site showcases great ingenuity skills of the workforce Incans had in the 15th century. The engineers managed to join these heavy stone blocks with each other without even using cement or mortars. Even to date, the site is revealing mysteries after mysteries about this Incan Empire which ruled the area.

Instead, you would need to explore Incan Rule’s capital which in itself is a place of multiple sites that cannot be explored in a day. You need to spend at least 2 to 3 days in order to complete your trip to Peru.SnirHananya can in fact complete your adventurous journey irrespective of wherever you are coming from.
Before leaving to Machu Picchu please do keep in mind that this historical site is especially for the hikers. At least 5 days’ hiking is required to be accomplished before a hiker has the chance to physically make his/her way into the fortress. In order to cut short this 5 days’ time, tourists begin their traveling towards the fortress through the train first. After reaching a certain point, the train trail ends and then there is no choice but to hike for reaching your ultimate destiny. However, the train reduces at least 1 day’s hiking so the hiking is cut short into 3 days at least.
In the past few years, Machu Picchu’s tourism authorities have taken several steps for ensuring that the sites are not over-crowded. In this context, the authorities have restricted the number of tourists visiting the sites to a certain extent. For instance, only certain number of visitors are allowed to visit the sites on daily basis. At the same time, visit permits are granted to the persons allowed to being their hiking towards Incan fortress. Entrance can be obtained directly through the Federal Cultural Ministry of Peru. Or, SnirHananya can be engaged for obtaining permission without any hasslefor your Culture and Tourism visit to this place.
Certainly wild and challenging adventure is awaiting you in Machu Picchu. You can live witness this wondrous fortress built by annexing multi-tons heavy stones which are clubbed with each-other have without any filling or cement.
