Machu Picchu was an Incan retreat for its emperor.
 
 

Now you can explore the awe-inspiring Incan estate of Machu Picchu — from your computer.

This huge image of the Incan site in Peru took nearly two hours to photograph and is made up of 1,920 separate images that were stitched together using a program called GigaPan. Viewers can zoom in to see the smallest details of the site.

The photographs were taken by Jeff Cremer, marketing director of Rainforest Expeditions, a company that runs eco-tourism trips to the Peruvian Amazon.
