How to Get the Most Out of Your Machu Picchu Trip

Machu Picchu is the most well-known travelers destination in Peru and among one of the most prominent in reality, so you would like to ensure that you do everything you can to make the most out of your trip and to make it a remarkable experience.

Many vacationers will certainly make a day trip to Machu Picchu from the capital of the Incan empire, the city of Cusco. One of the most vital things that I can recommend is to get to Machu Picchu as early as you can to make sure you can do everything during your day trip. Additionally don’t forget your entry ticket to Machu Picchu to save time, otherwise you have to buy a new one at the entrance of the archaeological site and will lose a valuable time.

There almost 12 departure times from the Sacred Valley to Aguas Calientes and if you are not going to stay overnight in Aguas Calientes or Machu Picchu, I would certainly recommend that you take the earliest train, which is typically around 6 am and will take you to Aguas Calientes at around 8 am. The train voyage takes you via the Andes and alongside the Urubamba River of the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the landscape is really awe-inspiring, so definitively you can’t keep your camera locked up in your bag.

When you leave the train at Aguas Calientes it is really alluring to look around the town and go to the market, yet you must do this heading back from Machu Picchu the train will quit at Puente Ruinas Station. When you travel with Peru Adventure Tours, you have included the bus ticket to Machu Picchu. There are regular buses at around 10 minute periods leaving away, the bus zigzags the sheer climb up the mountain, which can be an adrenalin rush as a result of the bus driving along the edge of the high cliff with a high fall into the woodland. Keep your camera or video camera ready as there are some great chances to take nice shots on this brief travel. It reaches the Machu Picchu citadel in approximately 20 minutes.

If you wish to climb Huayna Picchu (the characteristic mountain that you could see in the typical photos of the Machu Picchu citadel), as quickly as you enter to Machu Picchu you need to walk over to the base of Huayna Picchu to obtain a ticket to climb up the mountain, as there is a limit of 400 visitors every day that could make the climb, which is down for preserving the zone. It takes approximately an hour to make it to the summit and can make you feel sick at some points as a result of the elevation, so take your time in walking and appreciate the views of the Incan ruins at the same time.

After you have returned back to the foot of Huayna Picchu you can resume route to the main site and explore this impressive city of the Incan Empire that will certainly give you an unforgettable experience. Our company will program you an expert guide in your preferred language to make your exploring even more enriching. Here make sure you bring enough batteries and memory cards for your camera, as you definitely will have need of them.

Usually, most of the time visitors want to spend a night in Aguas Calientes town to explore and enjoy this charming place; our company will make a reservation for you in our recommended hotels in the zone. Finally, it can be quite overwhelming and risky to do the trip on your own in such a short space of time, so if you want to make sure you will see everything and be safe during your stay in Peru, don’t hesitate and contact Peruvian Connection, we can organize for you a wonderful trip to Machu Picchu according your requirements.
