TOURIST INFORMATION TOURS PERU MACHUPICCHU
Information Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu Tours:

Today we will visit a section of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu will take us about five hours, amid a landscape of cloud forest, where archeological remains of great importance stand as Chachabamba and Wiñaywayna are- Tour Peru Machupicchu. Then we continue walking to the place called Intipunko, meaning Puerta del Sol, designed by the Incas for a stunning panoramic view from the top of the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu tours. Overnight in a splendid hotel in Machu Picchu. Optional: Ceremony of offering to the Pachamama or Mother Earth (payment to the Earth) Tour Peru Machupicchu.
CULTURAL HERITAGE MACHU PICCHU TOURS:
The sheltered environmental conditions and benign climate which protect relict bird species and ensure predictable crops probably facilitated the development of human civilisation in the Andes based on a well developed sustainable irrigated agriculture on the mountain terraces -Tour Peru Machupicchu. Machu Picchu is at the junction of the humid lower Urubamba basin and the fertile Vilcanota valley machu that was the centre and breadbasket of the Inca culture (Walker & Fjeldsa, 2001). It was founded by the powerful reforming chief Pachacuteq who established his rule in 1438 as the ninth Inca, Yupanqui, over the fertile valley and the great city of Cucco where his successors ruled their vast empire of Tawantinsuyos until the Spanish invasion in 1534. Machu Picchu was built as a royal retreat, religious sanctuary and mausoleum for the mummified Inca, a natural fortress which was preserved by its mysterious sudden abandonment, inaccessibility and remoteness. It was reached from Cusco by the Inca Trail (Camino Real) across the mountains above the terraced Urubamba valley with its lesser settlements of Pisac and Ollantaytambo – Tour Peru Machupicchu.
The site, La Cuidadela inca Machu Picchu – day trip, of about 500 square hectares, sits on a narrow saddle between the humpbacked lower Machu Picchu (old mountain in Quechua) and the pinnacle of Huayna Picchu (young mountain). It is divided between the buildings of the court and the houses of the artisans, site guardians and cutivators with food stores and agricultural terraces clinging to the mountain slope below – Tour Peru Machupicchu. The ceremonial town site falls into two sections, the upper (hanan) lies to the west, with the palace, mausoleum, sun temple and the Intihuatana solar calendar stone for making astronomical observations -Tour Peru Machupicchu.
Machu Picchu – The lower section to the east (hurin) had the quarters for the religious and workers. They were separated by a long open plaza and two smaller squares machu. At present 172 enclosures are connected by 109 stairways and stone channels for water and fountains (Mujica. 2001) Tour Peru Machupicchu. The dry-stone masonry is massive yet refined and, for the nobles’ buildings, even polished. Burial cave chambers were also made at the base of Huayna Picchu. The number of residents when the court was present is variously estimated at 750 to more than a 1,000 but few stayed on in the wet season. It was probably last used as a stronghold by Pachacuteq’s great grandson, Manco Inca during his defiance of the Spaniards. The site was never found by the Spanish, and, concealed by encroaching forest, known only to a few locals, was only rediscovered in 1911 by the American Hiram Bingham of Yale University, who revisited and published on the site for the next five years – Tour Peru Machupicchu.
TOURS TO MACHU PICCHU LOCAL HUMAN POPULATION:
The original inhabitants were skilled irrigators who built terraces and drainage channels that extend long distances across irregular ground and still exist in many places. The population is of the Quechuaspeaking descendents of the pre-Columbian inhabitants who live in seven small communities and number about 1,200 within the Sanctuary itself. The local population, including Aguas Calientes (Machupicchu village), was 3,500 in 2004 (Shoobridge et al.) Tour Peru Machupicchu. At present over half the Sanctuary machu (20,000 ha) is settled by campesino communities and farmers, especially on the lower slopes which are routinely burned to stop encroachment by the forest and to provide pasture. Much burning occurs for no apparent reason in August and September, perhaps in the belief that the smoke causes cloud build up and the onset of much needed rains (Manu Wildlife Centre, n.d.). Agriculture, for maize, potatoes, yucca and fruit, and the cash crops of coca, coffee and tea, with grazing mainly for small animals but also for llamas, cattle and sheep (some 1,400 in 2004) form the traditional support of the people. But the local economy is increasingly augmented by tourism -Tour Peru Machupicchu.
Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu pueblo) 8 km away in the valley below, sprang up as an unplanned shanty town after the railway arrived to service tourists but is now the district administrative capital with growing strongly pressed claims to the facilities and use of 40% of the Sanctuary’s machu budget Tour Peru Machupicchu. The district is the fastest growing area in the country, rising from 1,303 inhabitants in 1993 to 3,436 in 2005; half remain very poor and half are migrants, coming in for the tourist season machu. But in this temporary population there is no traditional culture to instil respect for the sacred place (UNESCO-IUCN-ICOMOS, 2007) Tour Peru Machupicchu.
Fast unplanned growth without controls or improvements in infrastructure or services such as for disposal of wastes is aggravating the problems of landslides and threats to health. Cusco, 75 km southeast, is a city of over 100,000 inhabitants and the administrative and commercial centre for much of the Urubamba basin – Tour Peru Machupicchu.
TOURS TO MACHU PICCHU VISITORS – VISITOR FACILITIES:
Machu Picchu is Peru’s most popular tourist destination, growing from 180,000 visitors in the 1980s to over 400,000 in 2003, averaging 3-400 a day but some 1,500-2,000 a day in the high season and likely to increase (Shoobridge et al.,2004). There were 691,623 visitors in 2006 (75% foreign) and the number is likely to rise (UNESCO-IUCN-ICOMOS, 2007) – Tour Peru Machupicchu.
Machu picchu tours – The Management Plan advised that to reduce environmental deterioration, the archaeological site should not support more than 917 visitors per day and no more than 385 visitors at any one time The INC recommend a maximum carrying capacity of 2,000 visitors a day with an increased entry fee machu. The government favors the higher number of 3,400 (UNESCO,2002). A suggested daily limit of 2,500 visitors paying a higher entrance fee may be enforced (Leffel,2005). Recent listing as a new ‘Wonder of the World’ will increase tourist numbers – Tour Peru Machupicchu.
Visitors generate some $40 million a year machu picchu tours. Recent past growth led to a proliferation of uncontrolled and exploitative tour operators and many overcrowding problems, but the site is now better regulated by the government. Cusco is three hours away by railway, an approach which facilitates control of visitors and roadside developments. Access is by bus from Puente Ruinas station up a zigzag track in groups led by approved operators, or on foot, by a 2 to 4-day journey along 38 km of the Inca Trail. machu This carries 70,000 visitors a year and is now limited by permit to 500 a day in groups of 30 – Tour Peru Machupicchu.
The preservation of roadside Polylepis groves from being used for firewood also preserves some of the country’s rarest birds. In 2007 a new bridge and road at Carrilluchayoc in the buffer zone, to the growing village of Santa Teresa, to the west, has provided an alternative access to the site and raised fears of destructive overcrowding. At the ruins there is one hotel, a museum, ticket office and overnight campsites machu, also a steep stepped path up to the top of HuaynaPicchu. Tourist facilities are being developed in Aguas Calientes instead of on the mountain itself, and there is a new visitor centre, hotels and restaurants there. 561 rooms were available in 2007 with 16 eating places, employing some 300 people (UNESCO-IUCN-ICOMOS, 2007). Helicopter access was restored in 2008 – Tour Peru Machupicchu.[/tab] [tab title=”Book Now Tour”]
