Urumamba River - Machu Picchu, Peru

Machu Picchu is situated above a loop of the Urumamba River, which surrounds the site on three sides, with cliffs dropping vertically for 1,480 feet to the river at the base.  It is a partially navigable headwater of the Amazon River that rises in the Andes Mountains to the southeast of Cuzco and flows to the north-northwest past Machu Picchu. From the Inca Bridge trail the views of the Urumamba are fantastic. It also provided a good perspective of the final descent on our last day of hiking as we came down the mountain on the left to cross the river and take the train into Aguas Calientes.

  1. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to understand so much about this, like you wrote the e-book in it or something. I believe that you can do with a few p.c. to pressure the message house a little bit, however other than that, this is excellent blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

  2. Wow, fantastic weblog layout! How long have you ever been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is magnificent, as well as the content!

  3. Usually I do not learn post on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do so! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thanks, very great post.
