Machu Picchu is one of the most breathtaking and energetic places in the whole world. Not only that the views around are amazingly beautiful, you can also feel the history in the air. And it’s even something more… maybe the mystery of this place, which makes you thing once again about the basic values of life.
I don't doubt it's beautiful, actually I've heard about it before. But waiking up at 5:30 to see this place... I don't like doing this when on vacation either. Although I have to confess I did it a few times... to watch a sunrise in the sea, etc.
