A photo taken from Mount Machu Picchu, some 1000 feet above Machu Picchu, on the south end of the site. This photo explains how it was possible for Machu Picchu to be overlooked. One can barely see some structures if one was looking closely. The picture shows the Urubamba River encircling the site, Mount Putukusi on the right and the surrounding mountains.

Maybe the first photo ever taken of Machu Picchu, circa 1911 when discovered by Hiram Bingham.

Machupicchu by Martin Chambi

One hundred years ago, Hiram Bingham set out on an expedition to explore the reported ruins known as Machu Picchu.

This photo seems in reverse; if Huayna Picchu, the iconic mount supposedly north of the site, then the Intihuatana and the Torreon should be on the left, on the west side of the Central Plaza.

It is not clear that the photographer on the far left is Bingham who brought with him several experts, anthropologists and forensic; this photo was probably taken on Bingham's third expedition because much has been cleared. The Intihuatana is visit just below the mount.

Ancient Inca Machu Picchu, Peru as it was discovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911

Here is an illustration of Machu Picchu circa 1500 AD. It is exceedingly difficult to find illustrated reconstructions of this and any other Andean city so unfortunately this rather hokey image is the best I could yet find. In fact, Machu Pikchu (as it should be spelled) was not a city, but an estate for Incan emperor Pachakuti. If it seems small for a city, now you know why. The complex is located almost 8000 feet above sea level.
