A few more reasons why you've gotta go…
1. Come check out the impressive masonry of the Incans. To build Machu Picchu they used a technique called "ashlar" where they cut stone and placed them on each other without any mortar. Not even a knife blade can fit between the stones.
2. Macho Picchu, among other things, was an astronomical observatory. Its sacred Intihuatana accurately indicates the two equinoxes.
3. Machu Picchu is believed to be untouched by the Spanish Conquistadors because it was hidden high on a ridge and not able to be seen from the valley below.
