Machu Picchu is, without doubt, the most popular attraction in Peru. To reach MachuPicchu, visitors must first fly to Cuzco city and then take a train from either Poroy Station or Ollantaytambo station, although it is necessary to spend at least one night prior in either Cuzco city or the Sacred Valley before heading to 'The Lost City of the Incas' Depending on your point of departure, the train ride may take between 2 1/2 to 4 hours, and your final train destination is Aguas Calientes (Puente Ruinas Station). Aguas Calientes is the little town where all of the Hotels serving the citadel are found (except the Sanctuary Lodge located adjacent to Machu Picchu entrance, at the top of the mountain with the same name) The Bus Station is located within short walking distance from Puente Ruinas Station. From here, you will board a shuttle that will take you to the top of Machu Picchu mountain on a 20 minute zig-zag ride. Guided tours take aproximately 2 1/2 hours and your 1-day ticket allows multiple entrances within the same day. Most travelers book only 1 night in the MachuPicchu/Aguas Calientes area, which turns out to be plenty of time to tour the complex, enjoy the town and, for the adventurous ones, climb Huayna Picchu mountain in search of breathtaking views of the citadel. Another way to arrive to Machu Picchu is by hiking/trekking the Inca Trail. Travel on this system of narrow roads used since the Incas times, to enjoy 4, 3 or 1 night camping trips that start from various points in the Sacred Valley. Regardless of how you chose to arrive, either by train or by hiking the Inca Trail, rest assured you will experience the trip of a lifetime, a journey to a magical, legendary, lost city of the Incas, the recently declared Wonder of the World, Machu Picchu.
