Oliver Park is believed to have been posing for a photograph at the ancient site when he slipped and plunged 100 metres to his death.

The 51-year-old reportedly ignored safety signs and warnings from wardens to go into a restricted area near the edge of a cliff, according to the BBC.

Officials said the German national was attempting to pose for the photograph while leaping, as if in flight, when he lost his footing and fell on Wednesday.

His body was recovered the following day and taken to a local police station, the BBC reported.

His body is being taken to a morgue in the city of Cusco, police reportedly said.
