Machu Picchu reopens in Peru

One of the world's most treasured archaeological sites reopens after rains cut off access.

    One of the world's most treasured archaeological sites - the Machu Picchu in Peru -has formally re-opened after it was closed for two months following heavy rains and landslides in January that destroyed access to the 15th century Inca site.

    It is the most visited site in Latin America and the source of 90 per cent of Peru’s tourism income.

    Roger Wilkison reports on the joyful reopening of what has often been referred to as "the lost city of the Incas."
