Episode 70 -The Story of Machu Picchu with Mark Adams, author of Turn Right at Machu Picchu

   In my opinion, Mark has written the book to read before your trip to Machu Picchu.  It includes the history of the Incas and the Spanish Conquistadors plus the story of Hiram Bingham, the Yale lecturer whose expedition in 1911 found the ruins of the Incan site.
   The book also follows Mark (a self professed 'Martini Explorer') as he retraces the steps of Bingham's Peruvian expeditions.

   Did you know that there is a 'back door' to Machu Picchu? Or that there are many more Incan ruins to discover in Peru?  Find out more in our interview with Mark Adams, author of Turn Right at Machu Picchu

Secret of the Incas - 1954

Was this main character played by Charlton Heston based on Hiram Bingham?  And was this character the inspiration for Indiana Jones?

Hmmm, the main character seems to have a distinctive style.  Seems somewhat familiar

  1. Machu Pichu, as the word describes itself it is one of the seven wonders of the new world. A trip to this place would mean a lot more to those people who are in search of wonderful places. This place is amazing. Being one of the curious finders I got my amazing experience there. Before going to the place I consulted a travel guide so that my trek doesn’t turn into a nightmare. This company called Peru Travel Company helped me get a local tour guide and some of the awesome services which I never dreamt of. Good luck travelers!!

  2. For visitors to Machu Picchu, 2019 is the year of some big changes; changes to entry times and tickets, to what is acceptable inside, what you can take into the site, how much time you have in there, and when you will need to buy that coveted sunrise ticket.
