"You can Om your way through Machu Picchu
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? Amazing Peru offers a seven-day yoga tour where visitors travel from Lima to Cuzco and finally to Machu Picchu, where they stay in the famed sanctuary Lodge hotel right outside of the 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."
