styckx: Am I the only one never impressed by these?

I am endlessly impressed by stuff like this. I get on Google earth and travel around just so I can be endlessly impressed by it (and because it's fun.)

mongbiohazard: What's this about not letting people go anymore? Do you mean on the Inca trail or are they going to close off some sections of Macchu Pichu?

I remember discussions of both, but mostly Macchu Picchu itself. Apparently there were talks of creating a rope cable car which would take you very close to the ground and let you see things close up, but you wouldn't be able to actually walk on the grounds. This is how they do it at Chichen Itza, I think.

duffblue: DamnYankees: It's even better in person. I can't recommend the Inca Trail enough to anyone who is curious about it, and I'd recommend going as soon as you can, since they are eventually going to stop letting people do it.

Why is that?

Preservation. They are worried about it being run down by tourists, sort of like how you can't climb on the pyramids in Egypt or walk on certain sections of the Great Wall.

It looks like a nice place to live. But I wouldn't want to visit there. Not with all those body parts floating around.

VvonderJesus: Sounds like a sneeze.

Like most things, the Inca Trail is being ruined by biatches and arseholes. Tourists are using the ruins for latrines, leaving their powerbar wrappers and water bottles everywhere, and carving their names into ancient stones.

Macchu Picchu has some interesting routes that you can take. Apparently, it's considered a medium level trail if you can fly...

1920 seems pretty old. Why couldn't they have taken more modern pictures?
