The geocache “Para Emmy-n-Sapphie” (GC19941) sits just outside one of the most recognizable vistas in the South American country of Peru.  According to the cache page, the micro-cache is “hidden along a path on the outlying edges of Machu Picchu.”

The fascinating history of the site and the breath taking views reward geocachers for their find. Many tourists hike a substantial portion of the 2,450 meters (8,040 ft) trek up the mountain.

The difficultly three, terrain 3.5 geocache was hidden in 2008 by GiGi and JoJo. It’s maintained by a local friend of the cachers. The cache received more than 20 Favorite Points. Its been logged by 281 geocachers so far.

Geocachers who visited the tourist destination and logged “Para Emmy-n-Sapphie” write, “A perfect day for Machu Picchu. Coming here with heavy rain, fog, clouds and not so much tourists. And during noon the sun was coming out. The cache I found quickly.”
