The beautiful Sanctuary of Machupicchu not only houses a majestic ancient city built on the top of a mountain, it also includes the orographic formation known as the Vilcabamba batholith, which shelters the mountain of Huaynapicchu, in the central mountain range of the Peruvian Andes, with a altitude of 2667 meters above sea level, and which has archaeological remains highlighting the best pictures of Machupicchu.
Fun facts about this majestic mountain
The Temple of the Moon
They are archaeological remains built inside a set of caves, which were carved with fine precision, with ornamental walls in which double and triple jamb covers and trapezoid niches were built. Some studies claim that I can have funerary use and that graves were looted at some point in history.
On the way to Huaynapicchu
It is a very steep road, in short, narrow and in several sections you can see stairs carved in the same rock located on the edge of rock walls. When you reach the top, you can see the wonderful view of the archaeological remains of Machu Picchu and the Urubamba River at the bottom of the Canyon, worthy of the best photographs that can be found on the internet.
