Machu Picchu Pueblo, Peru

Climb above the Peruvian Andes where modern and ancient cultures meet.

Your experience begins in the colorful town of Machu Picchu Pueblo (Aguas Calientes), nestled in a valley on the bank of the Urubamba River. Fly the drone straight up for over 2,000 feet as you peer over the soaring peaks of the Andes Mountain Range toward Machu Picchu, a 15th century Inca citadel, UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Use the drone’s powerful zoom lens to explore the ancient temples, winding paths, and steep terraced gardens of this magical place.

Things to know

The flight path is currently limited to a vertical ascent and small horizontal movements, but you will have complete control of the elevation and camera with 56x zoom. The flight is approximately 1.5 miles from the Machu Picchu archeological site, with a clear view of the citadel, weather permitting.
