Peruvian police said on Tuesday they’d deport five tourists and prosecute the following after they supposedly damaged stonework and defecated one of the ruins in Machu Picchu, an Incan citadel that’s one of South America’s most famous tourist attractions.
Among those bankers supposedly defecated within the town.
An undercover guy will stay in the nation to face charges for”ruining Peru’s cultural heritage” later he confessed a direct part in the vandalism.
Machu Picchu is a UNESCO World Heritage site seen by several million tourists per year. The cryptic, centuries-old stonework has intrigued people, but a spike in tourism has increased worries about harm to the delicate website.
Even the United Nations has warned of pressing issues with deforestation, the possibility of landslides, uncontrolled urban growth and illegal access into the sanctuary.
