“The exact number of visitors will be announced this week. In 2014, 1,100,000 visitors were registered. We know there was an increase in 2015; thus it’s very likely the figure was exceeded,” the official told Andina news agency.

 

He said the Inca city is Machu Picchu’s heart. Thus, he hoped travellers will visit other diverse complexes located within the 37,000-hectare site.

 

It must be noted the natural protected zone shelters 4,187 species (among flora and fauna) and 12 ecological systems.

 

In this sense, a series of multi-sectoral campaigns will be launched to promote new routes and attractions found in the area, which was declared a historic sanctuary 35 years ago.
