Machu Picchu, Peru in Photos

Machu Picchu is a destination that speaks for itself. Before going there was a small worry in the back of my head that I would be disappointed, that the endless pictures and documentaries I’ve seen about it would have been highly edited or presented in a way that made the place seem more than it is.

Oh how wrong I was.

Pictures will never do justice to the magnificence that is Machu Picchu. The sheer remote nature of its location high in the mountains alone makes it an incredible place. But that doesn’t even encapsulate the remarkable rebuilding efforts that have been done on the site that give a very clear picture of just how ingenious the Incas were. It was a true wonder to behold.

So here are a few pictures I took while we were there in hopes it inspires you to see it yourself someday.
