The mountain of ancient ruins at Machu can be seen in the distance.

A couple of hours north of the capital of Huayna, in the state of Chiapas, sits Machu, where the ancient Mayan city of Machu was founded in 1216. 

“The Machu is a volcano, so it’s an earthquake zone.

And the Machu sits on a fault line,” said Daniela Bautista, a professor at the University of Arizona and one of the country’s foremost experts on the volcano.

“The ground is really high, and you can see it clearly.” 

Machu is among the last of Mexico’s volcanoes to erupt.

Over time, it has spewed out huge amounts of ash, creating a crater and raising fears of an impending catastrophe. 

But Bautistas team says the volcano is not on the brink of an eruption. 

The mountain of ruins sits at an elevation of 4,000 feet. 

Bautista said the crater is more than 8 miles wide. 

Her team is currently studying the seismic activity that would trigger an eruption, but said the risk is low. 

She also said that in recent years, there have been reports of people returning from Machu without any physical symptoms. 

There is no sign of an earthquake, Bautisa said. 

 A quake of this magnitude would have a major seismic shaking effect on the surrounding area.

Bautistas findings have prompted a new wave of excitement in the area. 

Since her first report in 2011, more than 200 people have been rescued from the mountain by helicopter.

Bautists team is working with local authorities to collect data on the ground, to determine the exact size of the volcano and to determine if it could be affected by a quake. 

Last week, a team of scientists and archeologists also descended on Machu to examine a large stone slab and determine its age. 

According to the study, Machu’s peak was around 3,000 years old. 

One of the biggest challenges is to determine what kind of pressure exerted on the stone, and where it came from, as well as to determine its location. 

In addition to the volcanoes, Machuc has been the site of a number of other significant archaeological finds. 

Its site contains some of the largest stone walls in the world, and there are a number found at the bottom of the crater. 

Machuc was originally an oasis of peace in the Mayan calendar, but it was soon under attack by the invading Spanish.

The city was devastated by a devastating plague in 1619, and the Spanish built a huge wall around the city, trapping its inhabitants under. 

Today, it is one of Mexico ‘s largest archaeological sites.
