Machu Picchu

"Lost" Machu Picchu

Exploring mystical Machu Picchu in Peru's Sacred Valley

The abandoned Incan "city" of Machu Picchu in Peru's Andes Mountains is a mystery. No one knows for sure why it was built, some 500 years ago – or why it was deserted. In fact, this ancient citadel was hidden from the western world until Hiram Bingham, an archaeologist from Yale University who was searching for other ruins from the empire of the Incas, stumbled upon it by accident in 1911, and dubbed it the "Lost City of the Incas." Maybe you can figure it out as you explore this amazing maze of a place, with what experts guess was a palace, dungeons, and over 100 staircases.

Painting Peruvian pottery

Secrets of ancient artisans at a Peruvian pottery studio

In Peru's Sacred Valley, a visit to a renowned pottery studio reveals some of the hidden meanings behind the sacred symbols that ancient Peruvian artisans used to decorate their creations... and offers you a hands-on opportunity to put your creative spirit to use and paint your own inspired work of ceramic art.

Peruvian Pasos in the Sacred Valley

An equestrian demonstration featuring Peruvian Pasos

Elegant Peruvian Paso horses are known for their graceful side-to-side gait, their high spirits, and their luxurious manes. The beauty and poise of these remarkable animals are evident as horsemen put them through their places in a private equestrian demonstration at Wayra Ranch in Peru's Sacred Valley.

Visit the Aymara on Taquile Island

The Aymara people welcome you to Taquile Island

Amidst the high elevations of Lake Titicaca, naturally formed Taquile Island is home to the Aymara, an indigenous people known for their hand-woven textiles and traditional way of life, which has changed little from that of their ancestors; they live without electricity or vehicles. A traditional lunch and dances await when you visit an Aymara family at home.

Sanctuary Lodge, A Belmond Hotel

At the gateway to the Inca Empire

The only hotel located at the entrance to Machu Picchu, Sanctuary Lodge, A Belmond Hotel, lets you beat the daily crowds that flock to Peru's centuries-old Inca citadel. Sitting in the shadows of the Lost City, this stylish retreat is an oasis of calm before or after a day exploring Machu Picchu. Unwind with a yoga session, take part in a traditional shaman ceremony in the garden, or sip muña tea in Tampu Bar. Tranquility, wonder and beauty are at the heart of the lodge's unique experience.
