Marvel at the ghostly, but exquisitely constructed ruins of a city that occupies a staggering position nestled on the craggy heights of the Andes in Peru.
There are many ways to get to Machu Picchu:
- via luxury or standard train
- by bus through the Sacred Valley
- by hiking for four to five nights along the Inca Trail, camping along the way.
Upon arrival most travellers agree that the best place to stay is at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge – the only hotel next to the ancient World Heritage site. After such an epic journey to the Lost City, nothing compares to waking up to sunrise views of the ancient citadel across the gardens of the lodge. Let’s not forget the convenience of being next to the gates of the Lost City for an early or late exclusive visit before and after non-hotel visitors have returned to the town of Aguas Calientes at the bottom of the mountain.
