Machu Picchu is situated on a small hill between the Andestops, at an altitude of 2,430 meters, which should provide a great view of the Urabamba valley.
Machu Picchu has been voted one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. This gives it a rightful place among other winners such as the Great Wall of China, the Colosseum in Rome, the Taj Mahal, Chichen Itza, Petra and the sculpture of Christ the Redeemer near Rio.
