At just over a minute in length, this video is just long enough to give us a glimpse of the wonder that is Machu Picchu, the famous Incan fortress that sits atop a mountain in Peru. The clip gives us some amazing shots not only of the ancient structure itself, but of the surrounding mountaintops, while the clouds and fog roll in across the Andes. It is an amazing place, that remains as mysterious today as when it was re-discovered by Hiram Bingham more than a century ago.
