    MACHU PICCHU CLOSED UNTIL APRIL 1st 2010

    by BandK Updated Feb 18, 2010

    Favorite thing: Actually Machu Picchu itself is closed, not just the train line from Cusco.

    I've heard on a few forums that they have actually place guards around the site, and people that had hiked in (via Santa Teresa, I believe) were actually turned away from the site itself.

    Both Machu Picchu and the railway both sides of it will no be open until April 1st.
    This site explains all the details very well:

    Take your time...

    by lbernedo Written Jan 1, 2010

    Favorite thing: ... to visit this magical place. Cusco isn't a place one should visit in a hurry; the chances are that you won't go back there so why don't you take your time to really enjoy this destination?
    If you can't spend there at least 5 days you'll regret it.

    Visit Tipón, the imposing cultivating terraces

    by El_Sueco Updated Jul 14, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Tipón is an archeological site with great terraces and an irrigation system from Inca time that still is in function. The water is spread out on the terraces in a ingenious way, you better have to take a look!

    Where did the Inca came from?

    by darthmilmo Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: Legend has it that the Inca came from the Isla del Sol, Bolivia. Today, this modern tourist attraction is jammed pack with travellers. As modern archeology evolves, so does new theories into the creation of the Inca empire. One new theory suggest that the Inca empire emerge not from Isla del Sol, but from the Pyramid type formation found across Ollantaytambo. One has to visit the Sacred with an open mind and a good set of eyes and ears. You never know what you're going to find :)

    Birth of the Incas or just Ollantaytambo?
