This video discusses the origins of the Incas and the importance of Machu Picchu. It also features interviews with archaeologists about the findings of the site. The video shows how the Incas created giant, stone-built fortresses and temples and how the people of the valley used the peaks as a guide to agricultural production.
The video discusses the many challenges of visiting Machu Picchu, such as the steep climb up to the main wall, the arduous trek across the difficult terrain between the cantera and the site of the construction, and the many impressive bridges and viaducts still standing today. It also discusses the three ways to visit Machu Picchu: by train, by helicopter, or on foot. The most difficult way to visit is by foot, as it takes about four hours to make the trip. However, those who make the effort are rewarded with an amazing experience.
