    mountain bliss Deemed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the world, 2011 is the year to visit Machu Picchu in Peru as we celebrate its 100th anniversary of its’ discovery! On July, 24 1911 Hiram Bingham brought “The Lost City of the Incas” to the attention of the world. Never discovered by the Spanish conquistadors, but known to the locals, Bingham was said to have paid 1 sol (3 times the daily wage) to a local farmer to be led to the ruins that had been long since reclaimed by the jungle. A year later he returned to begin excavation of this ancient Inca site. Machu Picchu not only displays the Incas mastery of complex masonry and terracing, but also its astrological importance. Mysterious and intriguing you will feel the energy of this sacred wonder.
