MACHUPICCHU - THE DRAWBRIDGE

       

THE DRAWBRIDGE
This bridge is located about 30 minutes from Machu Picchu on a narrow path through the jungle. It served as a defense on one of the few entrances to the city This singular drawbridge is part of one of the most dangerous trails in the city. The trail begins in the "Building with Ten Windows" to the south of the citadel. It is a narrow path daringly located on the flanks of a granite mountain. The 1 mile pathway is abruptly interrupted after a hairpin bend, giving way to a precipice, spanned by a narrow drawbridge made of logs. Thus, the logs are easily removable in case of danger. The bridge and the path were built taking proper safety measures into account
