We located Machu Picchu between the Andes and the Amazon forest, all the area bordering the attraction was a region colonized by Andean populations and not the jungle, came from Vilcabamba and the Sacred Valley, in Cusco, seeking to expand their agricultural boundaries. There are archaeological evidences that indicate the practice of agriculture in the region since 760 b.c. approximately.
A considerable demographic increase occurs from the year 900 of our era, by unknown tribes but possibly had links with neighboring ethnic groups. Discover Machu Picchu with us, recharge your energies in this magical city of the Incas and enjoy! that we will have everything organized for you.
