Machu Picchu is extraordinary

Article content

25 January 2010

The "extraordinary" ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru offer a mystical experience still largely detached from the rest of the world, reports the Daily Mail.

Wendy Driver writes for the publication of her visit to Peru to see the ancient city ruins, which saw her enter one misty morning into an atmospheric scene.

The wisps of mist clung to the surrounding mountaintops, while enveloping the citadel itself, Ms Driver stated.

She also noted the absence of modern transport links, apart from a narrow-gauge railway.

However, for many visitors this is likely to be welcomed and not viewed as an inconvenience, helping to retain the extraordinary nature of the site.

Machu Picchu also recently caught the eye of Suite 101 writer Melissa Sullivan, who noted the different ways of reaching the city.

Whether on foot over a period of some hours, or by bus in 20 minutes, she added that a "once-in-a-lifetime experience" awaits once the ancient city is reached.
