The famed Inca citadel of Machu Picchu will have four more access roads following the proposal of Cusco’s private sector for allowing tourists to enjoy the beauty of the ancient site from different standpoints.
Roger Valencia, head of the Tourism Chamber in Cuzco said that the now-unused roads into Machu Picchu could be reopened. One of these roads was used by the American explorer and archaeologist Hiram Bingham who discovered the Inca site in 1911.
Likewise, the tourist official said the news roads are located at the kilometers 113, 115 , 117 and 119 ( the latest one used by Bingham), and each of them are oriented to a specific public.”The routes are oriented to people interested in mysticism, ancestral wisdom such as water management and integration with living nature,” he told Andina news agency during his attendance to the Annual Conference of Executives -CADE 2013.
According to Valencia, the private initiative is accompanied by the implementation of two information centers which will provide detailed and comprehensive information related to the UNESCO World Heritage Site.“We are facing a completely new experience that will let the tourist industry to grow and then replicate its results in other places. We are taking the first steps towards this process,” Valencia said.
