Cuzco Peru Travel created this tour in order to show the best of our attractions to the world and the best of our attractions was named as one of the new seven wonders of the modern world MACHUPICCHU Historical Sanctuary covers an area 32,592 hectares and contains some of the most breathtaking scenery on Earth. Uniquely in South America, the Sanctuary was declared both a Cultural and Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1983, in recognition of its archaeological and natural wonder.

It is The Machu Picchu´s geographical location, forming the transition zone between the Andes and the Amazon, which makes it unique.

The extraordinary altitudinal range, from 6,271 meters (MT. Salkantay) to 1,725 meters (the Aobamba River), means that Machu Picchu comprises ten distinct life zones, from glaciers and highland pasture to cloud forests and the Amazon Basin. This remarkable range of habitats bring with it incredible biodiversity. Within the sanctuary, over 420 species of birds have been recorded (or 5% of world´s species) and 350 species of orchids have been registered (although it is thought that this figure may represent just of the orchid species within the sanctuary).
