In the ancient language of the Incas, Machu Picchu means "old peak", which only scratches the surface of Peru's top tourist draw. High in the cloud forest, the ruins of this former centre of worship and royal retreat sprawl across the landscape, an awesome display of staircases, carved tombs and sacred temples. Natural beauty abounds in the tropical forest setting in the eastern Andes. Get to the "Lost City" via train from Cuzco, or take a multi-day hiking trail if you're feeling adventurous.
