Tripadvisor has just announced the 2015 winners of the “Travelers’ Choice Landmark in the Word” and the inca citador of Machu Picchu proudly ranks number two on the impressive listing.
The enegmatic city of Machu Picchu “has never revealed all of its mysteries, including the secrets of its construction” according to Tripadvisor. Highlights of a visit to Machu Picchu include the Sacred Plaza with its amazing view across the Urubamba River Valley and the ruined Temple of the Sun. A view from the top of the Huanay Picchu – the mountain peak next to the citadel – overlooking Machu Picchu is another highlight. The Huayna Picchu trek takes about an hour, straightly up, on a narrow path with steps.
Number one of Tripadvisor’s Landmark List is the ancient temple site of Angkor Wat in Cambida. Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia ranks #5 and the Mayan site Chinchen Itza in Mexico can be round number 22 on the list.
