Machu Picchu Peru

Machu Picchu Peru - About

Machu Picchu is one of the 7 Wonders of the World and a great travel destination because of the historical architectural design and the unknown mysteries of Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu is one of the most well recognized images in the world. It is Peru's most popular tourist site and the most familiar icon of the Inca civilization. It was believed by archaeologists that Machu Picchu was constructed as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti who reigned from 1438-1472 AD. The accidental discovery of the site was led by Hiram Bingham in 1911-1912.

Machu Picchu is an ancient Incan city that is about 2000 feet above from the Urubamba River Valley; and was built in 1450 AD in what is now Peru. Aside from any religious concerns, Machu Picchu is a masterpiece of architecture and engineering; with the network of buildings and extensive terraces are literally carved into the side of the mountain. 

Machu Picchu is one of the best-known ancient cities of the world, and a staple of many tours of ancient cities, Machu Picchu is one of the best-preserved Inca sites, located in modern Peru. Machu Picchu was built in around 1450 AD, at the height of the Inca Empire. The city was built in the classical Inca style, with polished dry-stone walls.

Why was Machu Picchu built?

Machu Picchu is often characterized as an Inca fortress of Inca citadel. This does not really touch upon the exact purpose of Machu Picchu; it does not answer the fundamental question: 'Why was Machu Picchu built?' If you want to visit Machu Picchu or any future plan to visit or just have an interest in this historic place. So, here is a little overview, about the past and present of Machu Picchu, what it was and when it was built. 

Hiram Bingham rediscovered Machu Picchu in 1911. His initial theories as to why Machu Picchu was built were slightly clouded (and largely incorrect) due to a lack of information, as understandable bout of over-enthusiasm and, perhaps, a powerful desire to paint Machu Picchu in as grand a light as possible. In a nutshell, Bingham delivered that he had found.

Best time to visit Machu Picchu, Peru

Machu Picchu is incomplete without the looming green mountain that stands behind the ruins. The highest peaked mountain of Machu Picchu with Inca structures on the top at 2720 m. The hike takes about 50 minutes to reach at the top of the mountain. The scenery from the summit is unreal, you can see the mail square of Machu Picchu about 600 meters down and the Urubamba canyon all around. The hike is tough and a decent level of fitness is required.

Machu Picchu is open year-round. But October through April is the official rainy season, and it can rain at any time. But peak season is July and August, you should always expect crowds. Sunday can be the most crowded, because that's when people who live in the Cusco province are allowed into the site for free, in addition to the daily quota of 5,200 paying visitors.

How to get to Machu Picchu and where to get the tickets.

You can choose between a hike up or a bus to reach Machu Picchu. To access the site, you must have a ticket for Machu Picchu - which are available online in advance or from various ticket offices in Cusco. Machu Picchu tickets are NOT sold at the entrance gate and are limited to 2500 per day, with entrance to Huayna Picchu and mountain Machu Picchu each being further limited to 400 per day.

During peak times of the year, tickets to Machu Picchu and the special areas of Huayna Picchu and Mountain Machu Picchu can sell out weeks in advance. For this reason, it's highly recommended to buy your Machu Picchu tickets in advance.

After I woke up, I went to the balcony and saw it was raining. So, I was a little upset with this. Then I did my daily morning routine and dressed up with my running dress and shoes and went down around 5:30 am. After reaching down I saw it was drizzling then I did some warm up exercise for 10 minutes and then started my today's Half Marathon. Today the weather was good in the morning with a nice breeze.

I started running at 5:40 am, My first 2 km was very slow, for first 1 km it took around 6:30 minutes and next 1 km in 6:11 minutes and then slowly I increased my pace and able to completed my first 5 km in 31 minutes, then maintained same running pace and completed my next 5 km in around 30 minutes and continue my run with the same pace and was able to complete another 6 km in around 36 minutes, till now I had completed 16 km of my run in around 1:37 hrs then drank some water, changed my t-shirt as it was totally wet and then again started my running, till now I don't kept any target time to finish my today 21 k run.

But after completing 16 km in 1:37 hrs I got some confidence and decided to finish today's run within 2:10 hrs and break my own of 2:10 hrs which I created 2 weeks back. and with this target I continue running. Today's weather was good so I was enjoying my run and not feeling tired even after I completed my 16 km of run. After my 1 minute of break, I started my running and completed another 1 km in 6:30 minutes. Now I increased my pace and completed another 2 km in around 11:58 minutes. Now only 2 km left which also completed within 13 minutes and with this I completed my last 5 km in 31 minutes and I was able to complete my today Half marathon (21.12 km) in 2:08:30 hrs and break my own record which I created 2 weeks back.

After finishing my half marathon, I did some cool down exercise and went back home. After reaching home I took a bath and had my breakfast, then took some rest.

Today was my 5th Virtual Half Marathon (21 km run) and 6th Half Marathon of the year 2020. Today I ran 21.12 km in 2:08:30 Hrs and this is my best and new record of 21 km run.
