Machu Picchu by Train 01 Day Tour (Group Service)


Overview

Machu Picchu history started in 1911 when Hiram Bingham led a small expedition to Peru in search of the ‘lost city’ of Vilcabamba. This took Bingham and his party of seven people to Cuzco, from there by mule and on foot to a small settlement, called Mandor Pampa, near Aguas Calientes, where they encountered a local farmer named Melchor Arteaga. Arteaga told him that there were extensive ruins high in the mountains nearby at what Arteaga in his native Quechua called Machu Picchu, meaning ‘Old Mountain’.

Bingham and his party climbed up to Machu Picchu the next morning. They continued along one of the terraces and found the finest quality of Inca stonework, which were carefully cut and exquisitely fitted. Bingham was sure he had discovered Vilcabamba. He believed that until the end of his life, mistakenly as it turned out.

Machu Picchu is now believed to have been the mountain retreat of the great Inca emperor Pachacutec (‘He who shakes the Earth’), abandoned at some point after his death in 1472.
