Machu Picchu is now wheelchair accessible thanks to two friends and a new wheelchair

By

Millions of people flock to see the magnificent ruins and incredible landscape that make up Machu Picchu every year. But in December 2018, one visitor made history by being the first person in a wheelchair to access the ancient Inca site. 

And dozens more are set to follow them thanks to Wheel the World, a company founded by longtime friends Alvaro Silberstein and Camilo Navarro, which has the goal of making world heritage sites accessible to everyone no matter how remote they are.
