Machu Picchu is known as one of the most spiritual lands in the world, so why not go all out and Om your way through its ruins?

They participate in multiple meditation and yoga sessions throughout the trip, but the highlight is a private session smack-dab in the middle of the ruins. Now that is an Om experience worth waiting for."
