Machu Picchu now wheelchair accessible

Postby Alan » Fri Feb 01, 2019 11:26 am

Anyone who has visited this site can understand how clever you'd need to be to mobilize a wheelchair around the place. Kudos to them.


"As for the wheelchair itself, "It's designed with only one wheel and two long sticks that make it look like a wheelbarrow. It is a mix of steel and aluminum, like a bicycle, so it's light," Navarro explains.

The only drawback is that this wheelchair can't be self-propelled, so it does require a travel companion to help operate the chair and navigate it through some of the narrower or more difficult passes along the trail.
