Machu Picchu, Peru

Machu Picchu, Peru

The citadel in Machu Picchu is visited by almost 2,000 people every day. Each year the number of visitors increases by 6 percent. It is believed that this particular place is being crowded by lots of tourists.

Machu Picchu is a site that is situated in the very slopes of the steep mountains, and unfortunately these slopes are continuously being destroyed by erosion that is caused by rainfalls and landslides. The location of Machu Pichhu is very clean. Machu Picchu is also known for being the ‘lost city’. The reason for this is that the jungle had been covering the most part of this place when it was found by Hiram Bingham III in the year of 1911. After this when the excessive trees and shrubs were removed the entire area of ruins got discovered.

When tourists visit Machu Pichhu they should at least make it a point to spend one night in the town that is nearest to Machu Pichhu, this place is called Augus Calientes. There are various kinds of places where tourists can live while in Machu Pichhu. The architecture of Machu Pichhu is placed on a marvelous structure of limestone that is mortar free, and below it is a very high plateau that goes deep into the jungle of Amazon. If you want to go to Machu Pichhu from Cusco then you have to take the train, otherwise you can simply go on your foot through the hiking trail.

Machu Picchu is a very mythical city and is known for being mysterious in many aspects. This city is situated on the top of the Andes of Peru and it is famous for many reasons. A lot of pictures can be taken of this lovely place and as you have to walk a lot while visiting Machu Picchu, you get the chance to fully enjoy the beautiful sceneries all around.

You have to initially trek for four long days and then pass the Sun Gate. As you do so you’re taken to another time. While on the way of Inka Trek you will see lots of ruins but the one reason that will make you remember Macchu Picchu is its vast size. The Inti Watana Stone built by the Incas, Inti Machay and finally the amazing royal forest of the sun are the basic tourist spots of this place.

The Picturesque City of Delft, Netherlands

city of delt

Netherlands is known as the epitome of European beauty; and we are not just talking about the natural beauty, this includes the architectural landmarks too. A classy example of the same would be the city of Delft.

While I could suggest you a ton of places to spend your time there, the first place I would suggest you is the New Church, Markt. Not only is it around six and a half centuries old, it also poses many mausoleums as well as some of the exquisite work of European architecture. The windows’ stained glass of the church are an icon all over the country. The most interesting thing you could do is go to the top of the 108.75 meters high tower and enjoy the whole city’s view.

Talking of the city, the town center is lined with canals, which is one of the primary reasons that the city is so famous among tourists. There are numerous canals separating monumental historic buildings that are connected to each other through bridges – reminds me of Venice.  Being in the midst of all these magnificent buildings and the endlessly romantic canals, it would be a crime not to take a boat trip. The rondvaart delft and the salonboot den hag are the must haves on your to do list when in Delft.

Among the buildings mentioned earlier, the Oud Kerk, Nieuwe Kerk around the Old Church as well as the army museum of Legermuseum are some of the most important ones. Moreover, if your visit is going to be longer than a couple of days, the Delft City Hall and the Oostpoort (last standing gate from the 1400s) are sights worth seeing.

Like I said above, the historical buildings are not the only things that the city has to offer. Delft is filled with naturally beautiful places like the Delftse Hout Lake, which is basically where the city was created as well as the Nootdorpse Plassen, the most renowned natural tourist destination of the region. Last but not the least, if you are in town in spring time; consider yourself lucky as the trees would give you shivers with their fiery red leaves that come in stark contrast with the lush green grass that grows beside every road and in all the parks especially the Plantagegeer. I am sure you are going to have a time full of experiences, do not miss out on the opportunity if you have one.
