Machu Picchu: The Lost City - In 1911, American explorer, Hiram Bingham, set out to find the capital of the long gone Incan Empire in Peru. With his expedition, he traveled down the Urubamba River, asking local farmers about ancient ruins. When he reached a place called Mandor Pampa, Bingham, spoke to an innkeeper named Melchor Arteaga. Arteaga told Bingham he knew of an excellent set of ruins and led him up a steep slope to an altitude of almost 8,000 feet. There, nestled in a saddle between two peaks, Bingham found the ancient city we now call Machu Picchu. > Full Story
