    All you need to feel like you are really there is a lamp shining in your face, the smells of stone, sweat, grass and llama dung.

    Giga. Gigapixels. The page says 16 Gigapixels. No way you could get this kind of detail with 16 megapixels

    I think I found the Waldo of this picture. He`s staring right at the camera giving a thumbs up.

    Oh, @TheGuySmiley has already rebuked you... :-)

    Is there a home page for this site? Are other famous places available?

    @RytWing: Explained Here! It is very alarming to find one! lolz!

    @ Incubus: The Waldo guy you`ve found is the guy who worked with the photographer to make this photo happen: Destin from "Smarter Every Day." He does a lot of cool stuff. His YouTube channel is worth checking out.

    @ Anyone Interested: It`s fun to compare this high-res photo with one of the first photos ever taken of Machu Piccu, shortly after its discovery to outsiders in 1911 (the locals already knew about it). You can see that a lot of repair and clean-up work has been done over the decades. Early photo can be seen here.

    At first I thought Machu Picchu was a pokemon character. Go ahead and laugh, see if I care.

    This is your challenge, should you choose to accept it: Someone dropped a "Snickers" wrapper on the ground, find it.

    Having scoured this image pretty thoroughly, I`m going to have to call BS on the Snickers wrapper.

    I do have a bonafide challenge though. While it`s easy to find Destin (the organizer of the shoot, whom many of you are calling "Waldo"), it`s more difficult to find the photographer (who appears with Destin in the "Making Of" video, linked beneath the photo).

    Hints: (1) He`s looking right at the camera, with a grin. (2) He`s wearing a T-shirt that says "AFFLICTION."

    Give up? Answer can be found HERE.

    I`ve been here... when I was a teenager I went on exchange to Bolivia and during the year we went on a 2 week hike to Machu Picchu. Brings back memories

    @ FyreKitteh: Lucky you! That had to be an amazing experience (both the time in Bolivia and the hike to Machu Picchu).
