Peru - Cusco and Machu Picchu, 2005

19. Roadway to Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu was an Inca city built on top of a ridge high in the Andes. It was never discovered by the Spanish and became lost as the jungle overran it. It was rediscovered in 1911. The unsurfaced zig zag road from Agua Calientas provides a terrifying bus ride to Machu Picchu.
