The Incan archaeological site of Machu Picchu, Peru.

Designated a World Heritage Site in 1983, UNESCO describes the site as “an absolute masterpiece of architecture and a unique testimony to the Inca civilization”. Situated in an astoundingly beautiful setting, located on the center of a tropical mountain forest, Machu Picchu stands 2,430m above sea-level. it is located on the eastern slopes of the Andes, also encompassing the upper Amazon basin. Majority of archaeologists believe that Machu Pcchu was built for Incan emperor Pachacuti (1438–1472), and abandoned a century later at the time of the Spanish Conquest.
