Until January of this year access to Machu Picchu was impossible on a wheelchair. However, this has now changed thanks to Wheel the World travel company.
Founded by Álvaro Silberstein and Camilo Navarro, this company seeks to help people who cannot walk visit any tourist destination around the world.
On January they were able to do the first wheelchair tour to Machu Picchu in history and since March of this year, regular operations have begun.
Silberstein is in a wheelchair himself, so he knew exactly what tourists that cannot walk needed to make this idea possible. They created super light chairs that, with the help of an assistant, they manage to get the person to where they want to go.
