That is very interesting indeed.
I have been to Machu Picchu four times. It is well worth the effort, for me surpassing the Pyramids and other very different ruins.
I am puzzled by why they say these uncovered ruins were 'within sight' of M.P. because the area has been very well traversed.
The highlight for me was climbing Wayna Picchu, which overlooks Machu Picchu, taking a breather, then going on further - in the reverse direction of
the Inca Trail. There are several more ruins that way, but I turned back after four hours and my first sighting of the insect that infests the valley
there, whose name I forget but it means "makes the puma cry".
I will go there again now, especially to take in the new discovery.
And, one day, post a photo here of one of the most handsome devils you will see and a dear friend of his, atop Wayna Picchu some years back.
