Machu Picchu (Quechua Machu Pikchu, "old mountain"), also called "Lost City of the Incas",  is a city well-preserved pre-Columbian, located on top of a mountain, at 2400 meters altitude in the valley river Urubamba, Peru current. It was built in the fifteenth century, under the orders of Pachacuti. The place is probably the most typical symbol of the Inca Empire, either due to their original location and geological characteristics, either because of its late discovery in 1911.

This is one place I regret I have never been to when I was young and travelling extensively. Now I wish I did. What a beautiful photograph! It doesn't only show the famous Inka city but the great mountainous terrain around it. Very well done indeed.
