"Macchu Pichu" Machu Picchu Tip by Aglaia76

Machu Picchu, Cusco: 28 reviews and 42 photos

  On top of Wayna Pichu
by Aglaia76

A must to visit when in Cusco. If your not up for the full on inca trail trek, a good alternative is to jump on some kind of transport up the day before you plan to visist Macchu Pichu. If you have time and interest I would recommend to visit the several incaruins in Sacred Valley. The night can be spent in Aguas Calientes quite cheap and get you the chance to get up early and take the first bus at 5.30 up to Macchu Pichu. You will be there to se the sunrise and before the site get invaded by tourists. The two hour guided tour is really good and informative and I also recommend to climb Wayna Pichu to get a fantastic view over Macchu Pichu. It is only the first 200 or so that are allowed up there so don't wait too long!
