The great Machu Picchu, crowded or not crowded, misty, rainy or clear skies, never ceases to enthrall, and the Inca Trail is a great pilgrimage with SAS Travel. "Our first glimpse of Machu Picchu was just spectacular!! At each and every turn, the view was breathtaking. I kept imagining the almost impossible feat of building this "Incan city" all those centuries ago, using only ingenuity and manpower. It is impossible to describe; one must go to see it for oneself ! " ... How did the Incas construct stone walls so precisely using 15th century technology? How could they position a temple so it would be illuminated best at the exact moment of the solstices and equinoxes?
