Tour 4 Days Visit: Cusco, Sacred Valley, With Overnight In Machu Picchu

The archaeological complex is located at the top of the mountain, Machu Picchu (in Quechua means ancient mountain or important mountain) which gives the name to the citadel and the impressive landscape that we have all seen. In front of it, the incredible mountain of Wayna Picchu appears ("young mountain") in whose top and slopes some archaeological remains are located. Both peaks are bordered by the mighty Urubamba River that runs eastward, 400 meters below the citadel.
