DAY 2

Aguas Calientes | Machu Picchu – Ollantaytambo – Cusco

In order to enjoy a peaceful atmosphere in Machu Picchu, it is advisable to go there early in the morning; therefore we will leave at 5:30, after breakfast. Our guide will take you to the local bus station to catch the bus that goes up to the ruins of Machu Picchu. The bus ride to the sanctuary of Machu Picchu lasts around 25 minutes, and it follows a steep winding path, offering spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.

Upon your arrival, our guide will show you the most important sectors of this incredible Inca City: the great Intiwatana (solar clock), the Sun Temple, the urban sector, and the agricultural sector.

Machu Picchu was long thought to be legendary. Then in 1911, the explorer Hiram Bingham stumbled upon its remains. Machu Picchu stands 2,430 m above sea level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest, in an extraordinarily beautiful setting. It was probably the most amazing urban creation of the Inca Empire at its height; its giant walls, terraces, and ramps seem as if they have been cut naturally in the continuous rock escarpments. On the eastern slopes of the Andes, the natural setting encompasses the upper Amazon basin with its rich diversity of flora and fauna.
