Seeing Peru's Machu Picchu is quite an epic experience—even when teeming with people, as it is on any normal day. While trekking along the Camino Salcantay, writer Tom Clynes and I wondered if we might be able to see the more than 500-year-old Inca city empty by the light of the full moon, which was expected. Unfortunately, travelers are not allowed inside the site at night.
