Another virtual tour with Google – This time it’s Machu Picchu


Who is the guy at Google who gets sent to some of the world’s most picturesque locations with a funny-looking backpack so that the rest of us can see what it looks like without leaving our desks? How did he get his job? How could we apply for his job? Because he’s just been sent off to Peru, to the historic Machu Picchu, which means that you can now explored it as will

You can take a virtual tour through Machu Picchu and marvel over its mysteries while wondering just how the Inca managed to build what they did at the location sitting over 2,400 metres above sea level. Most of us would have trouble breathing that high up (we know, we know, acclimatisation).

If you’d like to go more in depth with some of the artefacts from the region you can pay a visit to the Google Cultural Institute and pay a visit to Museo Machupicchu. You know, in case you get tired of the view and want to look at close-up photos of relics instead. Seriously, how do we get that guy’s job?
