Machu Picchu, March 2016 - U of I EXPLORERS Photolog

Land of Ancient Incas

From the Sacred Valley of the Inca to the magical heights of Machu Picchu, we uncovered this culturally rich region of the Peruvian Andes. As a group, we stepped back in time to the glory of the Incan empire and strolled the cobblestone streets of Cusco, explored the massive stone fortress at Ollantaytambo, and wound our way through the sacred ruins of Machu Picchu. This is our story.
