Machu Picchu, Peru

Not sure if the tightened entry regulations are doing anything to ease over tourism at the site. We were here three years ago and there seems to be twice as many people now. Still, we managed to get a handful of pictures with no other people view because we took them very late in the day.
An overcast day with rain threatening but it never came.
Incan stone work. 
Llamas at the top near the Inca trail.
View from the top.
Afternoon crowds at the site.  The new entry system has 600 people entering each hour with restricted routes.  
Afternoon at the site. We had two entries, with lunch outside between entries.
It’s usually less crowded in the afternoons.

View of the Sun Temple.
View towards the peak of Machu Picchu.

The main entrance to Machu Picchu. 
Built in the mid-1400s and inhabited for about a hundred years.

It really is an incredible place, but probably our last ever visit here.
