There are all different kinds of travelers, in the world, and there are just as many different ways to travel. While some prefer to relax on a warm, sunny beach, others prefer to ski down a snow-covered slope. Others, still, find more adventuresome trips to be the best of all. These travelers feel happiest when they are trekking through the foothills of an historic location, such as Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu, like a few other great and wondrous locations, in the world, is a rare combination of natural beauty and man-made beauty. The ruined city of Machu Picchu sits atop the beautiful Andes Mountains. Each year, countless travelers make the voyage to Machu Picchu, to trek its slopes and valleys.

Trekking Machu Picchu is not as dangerous as trekking some other mountains, but that does not mean that it is completely safe.
