Turn Right at Machu Picchu by Mark Adams Book Summary


What happens when an unadventurous adventure writer tries to re-create the original expedition to Machu Picchu?

In 1911, Hiram Bingham III climbed into the Andes Mountains of Peru and “discovered” Machu Picchu. While history has recast Bingham as a villain who stole both priceless artifacts and credit for finding the great archeological site, Mark Adams set out to retrace the explorer’s perilous path in search of the truth—except he’d written about adventure far more than he’d actually lived it. In fact, he’d never even slept in a tent.

Turn Right at Machu Picchu is Adams’ fascinating and funny account of his journey through some of the world’s most majestic, historic, and remote landscapes guided only by a hard-as-nails Australian survivalist and one nagging question: Just what was Machu Picchu?

Makes me want to do the hike myself. I read this book a few years ago. I LOVED it!!!! I have always been fascinated with the Incas and Machu Picchu. This book makes me want to go and experience some of what Mark Adams saw and felt during his rediscovering of Hiram Binghams’s journey. I am hoping to do at least a week or maybe two to really fulfill my dream. Thanks for the inspiration.

Great book. Excellent book, wish it was longer

Read it before you go. This is the book that makes a trip to Machu Picchu worthwhile. It sparked my interest in Peruvian history. The simplest lesson this book can teach: Peru is anything but simple. Excellently written and memorable, objective yet pleasantly opinionated.

Read Before Traveling to Machu Picchu. I began reding Turn Right at Machu Picchu several weeks before I started my travels to Peru, cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu in September 2015. I had the requisite tour books for Peru but "Turn Right" brought a whole new prospective to my travels. By combining the historical route taken by Hiram Bingham in his quest for the Lost City of the Incas with his personal experiences, Adams gave extra meaning to my trip. Instead of just marveling at the scenery on the train from Ollantayambo to Aguas Callientes I looked for the entry into the Cloud Forest Jungle and it was breathtaking. It was as if I was seeing this green jungle as Mark Adams described it. My travels to visit Machu Picchu were made more meaningful by this amazing combination of history and reality.

Right Turn at Machu Pichu. Great read. I wish I'd found this book before I journeyed into Inca country.

Machu Picchu w/humor. I found this book to be very well written, very interesting, and also the humor here and there to break up what could be some dry reading was very much appreciated and I laughed out loud a few times.
