Aguas Calientes Town

Cordillera Vilcabamba, Peru

The town of Aguas Calientes (aka: "Macchu Picchu City") sits deep in the incredible Urubamba valley with giant granite walls and jungly mountains towering overhead. The Rio Urubamba is fairly subdued in the dry season; in the rainy season the entire riverbed here would be full of water.
