The Inca ruins of Machu Picchu are undoubtedly the most famous, and the most visited; literally thousands of tourists descend (or ascend) on the site daily. The ruins above Pisaq are much less known. Yesterday I rose early and made the long climb through the soaring, stepped terraces up to the ruins. For several hours I was there alone. When you are amongst ruins such as these, you understand why the Incas chose such locations; aside from the spectacular views, there is something special about them. You can feel it – it’s just different.
