Machu Picchu Machu Picchu: Alternative focus & Best
We have very few facts about the reason for the construction of Machu Picchu on that very steep hill, but among the different hypothesis, we choose to stands out the conception proposed by Luis E. Valcarcel to consider it as an educational center which would be sustained by the fact that the Inca trail leading to the site, contains buildings of increasing importance set along the path leading to it. Valcarcel suggests it could be a sort of university and there would have been reasons for the wise men of the time to visit and/or settle for a time. Machu Picchu is not comprehensible if the trails to it are not being considered. The most popular of those trails is now used by hundreds of people every year that visit the sites set on the way leading to Machu Picchu. A small one, called Runku Raqay is found after crossing the path over Warmiwañusqa hill, where water has been canalized an a small esplanade built beside it. After the next pass, we find a building holding three water fountains which the Inca usually built to listen to the flow of cascades. The way proceeds through a tunnel after which we reach another construction along the steps following it where we notice that 6 fountains were built. We continue to walk down a steep staircase in order to reach Wiñay Wayna where we shall find 10 fountains with water flowing from one to the next. In an equivalent way, we shall find fountains in Machu Picchu but their connection is more intricate and they are 16 in number. These constructions along the main trail to Machu Picchu are reasons to understand the importance of reaching it after a series of rituals which undoubtedly were performed before reaching it. THE INKA TRAILS In order to understand the necessity to reach Machu Picchu by foot, we must make a point of the Inka roads system. Called ÑAN in the native tongue. The large trails connecting important places are called KAPAK ÑAN, that is, important roads that the Incas had built throughout the empire and are in use up to this day. No doubt the empire was profusely communicated but the term Kapak would apply to the great trail joining Cusco with Quito, capital of Ecuador, and with Tucuman in northern Argentina, from which we can conclude that Cusco was, not only a political center, but possibly a religious center since, in the like of the romans, every road led the pilgrims to the center of Tawantinsuyo.
