It isn’t just the altitude that will take your breath away in the high Andes, because Machu Picchu will leave you utterly awestruck. Head up early in the morning or late in the day (ideally during sunrise or sunset) when you can explore these incredible Inca ruins surrounded by fewer visitors. Those without budget constraints should take the luxurious Belmond Hiram Bingham train from Cusco to Aguas Calientes, at the foot of Machu Picchu. You’ll leave here truly inspired by what humans can achieve.
