Caretakers Hut and Funerary Rock
This is the best look out point from Machu Picchu. Get there between 6.30 to 7.30 am and enjoy a stunning sunset. The caretakers hut is set above rows of agriculture steps where Llamas can be seen feeding on the grass. This point offers you a comprehensive view of the entire area, outlining the agriculture and urban zones of ancient Machu Picchu.
The dry moat stretches quite a distance and acts as a separator of the two zones; the agricultural and urban zones. The moat leads to the main gate past a number of ancient burial grounds that reflect traditions and customs of the Inca.
This is a cleared out space strewn with large stones; offering fabulous views of snow-capped mount Cordillera Vilcamba to the southwest. The quarry tapers off down a steep flight of stairs to another one of Machu Picchu’s most famous ruins.
The Temple of the Sun
The Temple of the Sun’s tower is lauded for its excellent stone work and is tipped to be the best in Machu Picchu. The stones come together with almost no seam while the window above the tower is well placed to face the June winter Solstice; at dawn the suns rays come streaming through the window to hit a stone right at the centre of the temple.
The Royal Tomb
The Royal Tomb is located below the Temple of the Sun; it is a cave carved into the rock. Interestingly no human remains have been discovered there, however within is an alter and little nooks that cast curious shadows on the walls.
The Royal Sector
Just past the Royal Sector is a succession of water canals that are still in operation. These are joined by beautiful fountains; the largest is quite impressive displaying excellent stone work.
Temple of the Three Windows
The temple of the three windows is the main ceremonial chamber marked by three windows; offering stunning views of the Andes across the Urubamba Gorge. To the front of the temple is the Sacred Plaza, to the left the Principle Temple renowned for exquisite stonework and opposite is the House of the Priest.
The Sacred Rock impends towards the eastern edge of the Urubamba Valley. The area is believed to have been a community meeting and entertainment place. Local myth amongst the locals is that the rock transmits energy; place your hands on the rock and feel the force.
Climbing to the top of Huayna Picchu is not for the faint hearted. This is a huge ridge that serves as a back drop to Machu Picchu. The rather steep path generally takes one about an hour to climb. Only 500 visitors per day are allowed.
Temple of the Moon
This is on the way down from Huayna Picchu. Carved into the rock above Rio Urubamba it is a mysterious place of caverns and alters.
