    Build around 1450 by the Incas, Machu Picchu was officially reported only in 1911 by an American historian, and from that date, it became an important tourist attraction. The ruins are 2430 meters above the sea level and there is only one hotel in the park, so almost all the tourists sleep in Cuzco and Ollantaytambo, and from there they hike the Inca trail or even go by rail to Aguas Calientes, the closest city to Machu Picchu, walking or taking a bus from there to the ancient city.
