Machu Picchu Condor's Eye View



To navigate, drag the navigation bar button above in the direction you want to look.

Amazing condor's eye view of Machu Picchu from the air. Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, is without doubt the most recognizable symbol of Inca Civilization.

The ruins consist of a collection of terraces, stone walls, steps and temples covering an area of about five square kilometers. Their mystical quality takes the breath away.

On every side, towering peaks, precipitous chasms, ravines and valleys stretch as far as the eye can see. The Incas believed mountains were the hands of the Earth stretching up and trying to touch heaven. And the peaks of Machu Picchu, their tops brushed by wisps of cloud, do indeed seem to be reaching for the sky.

Travel to the Andes Mountains of Peru to run the Inca Trail Marathon on the next Memorial Day weekend.
