11 Best Views From Around The World

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of sheer awe that washes over you as you stand at the precipice of some lofty vista in some enchantingly foreign land. From ancient monuments to roving canyons to sweeping mountains, here are 11 of the best views you’ll find around the world.

Machu Picchu, Peru

The ancient Incas knew something about the value of prime real estate, having built the impressive settlement of Machu Picchu at nearly 8,000 feet above sea level. The ruins of the 15th century site remain today on the mountain ridge above Peru’s Sacred Valley, and have been partially restored to represent what they once would have looked like. Classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and often considered to be one of the great wonders of the world, Machu Picchu – especially when viewed from a high vantage point – is a wonder to behold.
