Few archaeological sites in the world can match the grandeur, spectacular natural setting, and mystery of Peru's Machu Picchu, located on a remote ridgetop in the Andes Mountains high above the Urubamba River. This video takes you on a tour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and along the way outlines the development of the great Andean civilization, the historical background of Machu Picchu, and the mystery surrounding its abandonment and rediscovery. Breathtaking views combine with an authoritative and respectful narrative.
