I decided to guide people in Machu Picchu in the 1980-ies, that was when I began being a guide in Machu Picchu. So from the 1980-ies until now I’ve been working fertilely years as a guide in Peru and mostly in Machu Picchu.

Sunrise at the Guard House

The most interesting time to be in Machu Picchu is in the dry season in the morning to see the sunrise. The most days of the year in the dry season the sky is very clear, blue skies and 80% of the time it’s possibly to see the sunrise. And the best place defectively is the guard house over there. It’s very magic to see how the sun, the most important god shines over the whole center of Machu Picchu.´
