Video: Birdseye View of Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is amongst the most visited destinations in the world and for good reason. The site is a spectacular ancient ruin set atop a mountain in Peru with the Andes as a dramatic backdrop. One of the best places to view the Inca fortress is from Huayna Picchu, a nearby peak that requires a bit of a hike to reach. The video below, which was shared by one of my compatriots at Gadling yesterday, takes us on the journey to the top of that mountain, which does indeed provide a fantastic pay off.
