Peru’s famous Machu Picchu which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and the famous Inca Trail will be indefinitely shut down as Peru is going through political unrest.
The decision was made to protect the safety of tourists and the locals in general.
If reports are to go by, more than 400 local and international tourists were stuck in these popular sites recently.
Some of them even chose to walk to the nearest village of Piscacucho, that’s around six to seven hours of walking.
As per the reports, tourists who have already booked their tickets for Machu Picchu will get a full refund.
All train services to Machu Picchu are also suspended.
The 15th-century UNESCO World Heritage Site of Machu Picchu is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The capital city of Lima is definitely off-limits for visitors, and so are the rest of the Andean regions.
The Inca trail takes you on an epic hike to the lost city of Machu Picchu through one of the most stunning landscapes in the world – the snow-covered Andes Mountains on one side, and the deep Amazon forest on the other.
