A stiffish climb up the pathway to Waynapichu gives this wonderful view of Machupicchu. You need to be reasonably fit to do this walk but the view at the top is worth the burning lungs and legs. Magic
The view from the top of Waynapicchu shows not just the layout of Machupicchu but in the context of the surrounding naural features. Machupicchu can be seen on the left of the picture half way up
Impossible to capture fully this place on film. It exceeded our expectations even with the huge build up we had. If you are going to go, go early. If you get the chance, climb the mountain behind, Waynapicchu for truly spectacular views of the area.
We took this photo after coming down from the pyramid, from the top there is a fabulous view of the whole valley and various other smaller monuments.

Here is another view of Corcovado Mountain (710 meters high) and Christ The Redeemer monument, taken from a bus stop. This "Number One" landmark can be seen from (almost) everywhere in town, like this street (Rua Humaitá), a very busy one.
Corcovado Mountain and Christ The Redeemer monument, seen from Laranjeiras Street. I know it's not a good pic by the technical side. Anyway, I liked the composition as a whole and decided to post it... Hope you like it!
