This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile217/Machu-Picchu.htm>Machu Picchu</a></b><br><br>Machu Picchu (literally means &quot;old peak&quot;; sometimes called the &quot;Lost City of the Incas&quot;) is a well-preserved pre-Columbian town located on a high mountain ridge, at an elevation of about 6,750 feet (2,057 m) above the Urubamba Valley in modern-day Peru. The site is probably the most familiar symbol of the Inca Empire, both due to its unique location, its geological features, and its late discovery in 1911.
