Well. it is not much, but to my surprise, National Geographic selected three pictures of mine when they finalized their selections of 11 photos for "Machu Picchu Pictures".

And here is my third photo of Huayna Picchu, or called as Wayna Picchu meaning "Young Peak". As I mentioned before, I was with a tour group and I could not use the tripod for many reasons. I hear that tripod was not allowed anyway.. So.. handheld, using 18-200mm at 200mm without breathing...

I will add one more picture of the classic Machu Picchu photo below to show the Huayna Picchu as well as the shot I posted earlier, "Urubamba River Gorge".

Enjoy! (Yes, I love to go back there.)

Huayna Picchu Terraces
Photograph by Kee Woo Rhee, My Shot

Terraces are carved high on Huayna Picchu. For decades Machu Picchu was a puzzle for archaeologists and historians.
A 16th-century legal document and studies of the site’s architecture and artifacts in the latter 20th century
have suggested a mountaintop retreat for Inca ruler Pachacutec Inca Yupanqui.

Hi BenV,

I was also wondering who takes care of the grass.
I was looking all over the place to see any one does do that.. and I found the answer.
His name is Llama!

Liamas take care of the grass at the Machu Picchu!!

Terrific images, Kee.
Like you, I was amazed at Machu Picchu. To me it was the most exciting all-round "ancient ruins" I've ever seen. And in an incredibly beautiful locale.
Congratulations on your pics, and Nat Geo's picks.
Good stuff!
Charlie

Yes, it is a wonderful place. Go..go.. but make sure you follow a doctor's advice. And.. go s-l-o-w !!

-- Mark Rosenberg, M.D. says, “The best way to protect yourself from altitude sickness is to begin taking 60 mg of gingko each day at least five days before your ascent. Studies show its effective just one day before, but five days provides even better results. I recommend using a gingko extract rather than a capsule-generally liquids absorb into your body better.”

Thanks Charlie,
I enjoyed every minutes while I was traveling Peru especially Machu Picchu.
However I was rather sad to learn the history of ancient Peru how it was conquered.
