The remaining nearly 1,300 tourists stranded near the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru have been airlifted to safety after floods destroyed road and rail links, local officials say.
Around 25 tourists were being ferried out every fifteen minutes on Friday by seven helicopters working in rotation.
Nearly 4,000 tourists and local residents have been rescued since Monday. The evacuation was conducted by age, with the elderly and children taken first.
Tourists were left trapped in the nearby town of Aguas Calientes after heavy rain and mudslides had blocked the train route to the Machu Picchu site.
As tourists waited for helicopters the authorities in the city of Cuzco declared a state of emergency in Peru's south-eastern region. They said thousands of people had had their homes destroyed by floods and landslides.
While waiting for rescue a number of the tourists helped build up defences against the floodwater.
With the rail link cut, supplies of food and water were limited. Bottles of water are said to be selling at five times the normal price and some tourists' patience was stretched.
Some tourists also complained at the slow pace of the rescue effort.
Those rescued were taken to the airport in the city of Cuzco, the regional capital which had itself seen flood damage to its historic Inca centre.
