“A line of cable cars at the UNESCO World Heritage site should bring in more domestic visitors while making transportation in the area more efficient, according to a report from state-owned news agency Andina”, you can read in Peru Reports.
According to the president of the Peruvian Association of Travel and Tourism Agencies (Apavit), Ricardo Acosta, a system like this will allow people to travel easily to nearby Huayna Picchu.
“The multi-million-dollar project has been compared to a similar one that was developed for the Kuélap ruins in the southern Amazon. Acosta said that the project in Machu Picchu would even be less complicated than it was in Kuélap”, informed Peru Reports.
Today, the ruins bring a revenue of $5 billion US dollars to the country’s tourism sector with an estimated of 4.4 million foreign tourists per year.
