Returning from the hike from Huayna we took a short rest alongside one of the terraces near the sacred plaza. After resting for 15min. we started exploring the ruins in the early afternoon sun. During the midday hours the amount of people in the park begins to swell. But even with all the people, the 360 degree views and amazing ruins makes Machu Picchu one awesome place to visit! The architecture alone is something that one has to just marvel at. Its no wonder that it was chosen as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.
