Immerse yourself in Macchu Picchu in virtual reality
The city, perched on top of a mountain in the Peruvian Andes, Macchu Picchu is one of the wonders of the modern world. Its access is particularly difficult, even today. It is indeed found in the Andes mountain range in an area quite close to the Amazon rainforest.. This city that is attributed to the Inca civilization has remained secret for centuries. The Spanish conquistadors never heard of it and it was not until the beginning of the 20th century that its ruins, partly overgrown with vegetation, were discovered again.
National Geographic Explore VR intends to make us soon discover this lost city and restore its ruins to their former glory.. The magazine will indeed release a virtual reality application that will allow us to visit the constructions of Macchu Picchu. You will be able to discover the various temples which compose it with its so particular Inca walls which withstood time and earthquakes. Discover its residential area and its clever hydraulic system. Watch llamas grazing in the impressive terraced growing areas. Even if you will not be able to feel the particular energy of this city, you will be able to discover all its magic and its beauty.
While waiting for the release, you can already visit Macchu Picchu in this 360-degree video.
