I can honestly say that OneSeed Expeditions is my favorite trekking/adventure company! I went to Chilean Patagonia with them and had such an amazing experience, I couldn't miss out on another adventure with them! I did the Salkantay Pass Trek to Macchu Picchu and I was NOT disappointed. Our guide was pretty freaking amazing and made our journey so unique and personal...it couldn't have been better! Macchu Picchu is such a beautiful and sacred place and the journey there is equally inspiring, so if you're going to do it then you have to do it right! Go with OneSeed Expeditions and you will not regret it! I'm already looking forward to my next trip with them...perhaps Nepal since I've heard so many amazing things :)

The site itself is an amazing thing to see but if you have a romantic notion it's just going to be you and a few other people there to watch the sunrise then you're dreaming! UNESCO want to limit the amount of daily visitors to around 3000 people but unfortunately as it generates so much money the government apparently allow 5000 visitors in a day. So, you're dream scene actually turns out to be an elbowing filled footrace to a vantage point before 267 other people get there. Basically there's just too many people and where there are too many people you should never underestimate the predictability of stupidity. Unfortunately a tourist died there a couple of months ago when he jumped to take a photo. As a result there is a "no jumping" policy but this doesn't stop some clowns still doing it right next to the sharp drops and when they are 2 feet away from you what are they going to try and grab to steady themselves? The site is policed by men with whistles shouting "no jumping" in Spanish making it feel like a visit to your local swimming baths. Add the selfie stick craze to this and what should be an amazing chance to be in awe of such a spectacle turns into a procession of buffoonery while some people risk their lives and yours for a Facebook profile picture.

Considered one of the New seven wonders of the world I must Amit that it is!
A magnificent structure located between mountains & secured on all sides!
Beside being a historical Treasure the Secret to Machu Picchu lies in its strategic composition & its magnificent design!
Everything is designed in a fort Site with careful planning & wonderful use of engineering techniques.
We climbed lots of steps & stopped to see different buildings: the sun temple, the sanctuary, the gardens & more!
An Inca Kingdom with amazing Inca technology where they made the stones fit perfectly without mortar.
Stunning mountain landscape.
Mystics & Shamans Centers.
A Magnificent Site!
