During the month of May, Away.com asked our readers to submit their inspirational photos of iconic destinations around the world, and in exchange we'd gift the best with a $100 Visa gift card. Kelli Dinnison submitted her winning photo of Machu Picchu and said, "The Inca Trail hike was well worth the destination picture!" and we quite agree. These pre-Columbian 15th-century ruins were discovered in 1911, but no one knows why this city was built or abandoned. Machu Picchu is definitely a life-list destination, and whether you hike the Inca Trail like Kelli or take the train from Aguas Calientas, you are guaranteed a moment of awe when you reach the overlook.
