Discover the legendary Inca city above clouds

Find Your Trip


The New World Wonder

Machu Picchu, an ancient citadel set among the clouds and built by the Inca Emperor Pachacutec in the 15th
century, is the ultimate bucket-list destination for travelers on their luxury trip to Machu Picchu tours.

This captivating city, “lost” for centuries before being “rediscovered” in 1911, is located in the Urubamba province
of the Cusco region of Peru. The enigmatic ruins still lure in legions of tourists who come to marvel at its
seemingly improbable setting, high up on a cloud-swirled plateau amid an audience of Andean peaks. It is not
only Peru’s most-visited tourist destination but is also the most-visited site in South America as a whole, with
around one million people making the journey here every year. In 2007, Machu Picchu earned a spot among the
New Seven Wonders of the World.

Best Time To Travel

Machu Picchu, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, the way it appears in
classic photographs – with clear blue skies as a backdrop to sun-lit stone ruins – is best
experienced between May and October.

These months align with the region’s dry season and are the most popular time to visit Machu Picchu. Peak season and
the busiest time to visit Machu Picchu are June, July, and August. These months align with the heart of the region’s dry
season, the most sunshine, and summertime in the northern hemisphere. From June to August, large crowds can make
it a little hard to move around sectors of the Historic Sanctuary and long lines at the main entrance are common.
