Machu Picchu has always been one of the most iconic places in the world and has now become the popular destination to visit and spend your vacations at in the entire South America. Machu Picchu has so many cultural and natural treasures that have fascinated the locals as well as tourists to visit this destination at least once in a lifetime. There are lots of fascinating reasons that justify the fact that Machu Picchu is worth a visit, let’s see what they are. Whether you are an adventure lover or not, one must definitely not miss the natural beauty of Colca Canyon. 

Along with its remarkable sights and scenery, Colca Canyon is also pretty famous due to the fact that it is twice as deep as the Grand Canyon. Something that truly makes your experience worthwhile is the journey from passing through the volcano before landing into the Canyon.

Lake Titicaca is quite a popular tourist attraction in Peru as it offers an interesting perspective to the life’s of the local people here. Although, when one gets on the lake, it gives a weird yet interesting feeling as it is entirely made up of reeds. The best way to travel is to take the bus from the Cusco to Puno.

Certainly, one of the most important things to do in Machu Picchu is to visit their sanctuary where one can check out the worlds famous remains that are restored of the Pre – Columbian Inca Empire that consists of 200 structures. Some of the main sites here are the sacred temple of the three windows, sun oriented Intihuatana and the temple of the sun.Located just outside the city of Ica, Huacachina is a desert village that is built around a natural small lake surrounded by sand dunes from all the sides. It is a famous destination for the tourists as where adventurers can come in and enjoy sand boarding and riding high speed dune buggy rides. These sand boards are easily found at hotels and hostels.

If you are looking to explore the ancient ruins, temples and cities to get access to the Inca ruins, the best place to go that is to get to Cusco. This city really knows how to enchant its visitors. To get here one needs to trek the Inca trail to Machu Picchu if you are into adventures. Otherwise, if you are not really into thrills and adventures, you can always take a daily train to this lost city.

As the name suggests, the Rainbow Mountains are pretty famous and attracts thousands of tourists to witness this beauty. The colorful mountain ranges are truly a sight to see that highlights the diverse beauty of the Machu Picchu city. One can get here by taking a trip to Cusco.
