A litte Inka history – Mountain cave graves in Urubamba Valley , Peru

This is  a little odd post for me. When I was in the Inka valley of Urubamba in the Sacret Valley our guide asked us to make a stop and look in some caves on a mountain on the opposite side of a gorge.

This was  graves, and with a little help from a zoom lens you can actually se two skeletal (at least the heads) lying in the cave opening.

Some images from Machu Picchu

I just wanted to share some images of the amazing Machu Picchu. Hope you enjoy

We start with a panoramic view of the entire site

There is so many trails and steps everywhere in the site .

The loaction in the valley is spactacular. No wonder that it was undiscovered for such a long time

image

The site have four diffenrent ways to get into it. One of the most spectacular ones is the Inka brigde. Of resons not needed to explain, we where not allowed to walk on it.

The valley below is quite steep and narrow.

The site it self have served several puposes.

So here is a image of how the houses was.

A little more close up.

The Inka terraces is the most famous part of the farming practices. And the construction is quite impressive to say the least

Here you might get a little feeling of how steep the buildings are located on the site
