Serious flooding in Peru has damaged 50 different archeological sites as well as displaced locals in the areas. There has reportedly been around $3 billion in damage and 90 people killed.
The last flooding occured between March 19 and March 23, and some areas got as much as 5.4 inches of rain each hour. The 20 pyramids at Bata Grand are currently under high threat.
A statement has been released by the hotel and ecotourism company Inkaterra about areas that have not been affected by the flooding.
“This has not affected any of the regions in which the Inkaterra properties are located (the Andes and the Amazon) and Inkaterra confirms that all the properties and tourism activities in the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu are not affected by the natural disasters and are operating as usual.”
