\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nThe most famous is Machu Picchu, the ancient Inca pleasure palace built of stone and perched on top of a mountain. Machu Picchu was only discovered by Westerners in 1911, but was built around 1450. \nYou can reach it by taking a 4-day guided hike along the "Inca Trail…" from Cuzco, the capital of the Incas. You will cross multiple ecological zones and walk on stones hand-cut by Inca masons (and maintained for tourism). At dawn on the last day you arrive at Machu Picchu, which is usually shrouded in mist. You can also take a one-day trip by train to the site (there is no road to it). If you do the Inca Trail you return by train.\nOther wonderful places are: Lake Titicaca, Arequipa, Manu National Park, Nazca Lines, Chan Chan, Lambayeque. ( Full Answer )
