During my stay in Colombia, I traveled a bit around South america. My first destination was in Peru. Started from Cali (Colombia) to Lima (Peru), then Lima to Cusco.

I went to Cusco for a few days for two reasons. The first one, was for a two-days trip in Machu Picchu (short Inca trail) and the second one, for a two-days trip in Rainbow Mountains.

On this post I will show you a few pictures about Machu Picchu. The tour cost about 370$ (with Loki Travel), but you can find cheaper tour on Cusco. This tour included :

  • Bus to Ollantaytambo
  • Train to Agua Calientes
  • Entrance fee for the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu
  • Breakfast on day 1
  • Lunch on day 1 (sandwich, chicken, sausage, etc)
  • Dinner on day 1
  • Night accommodation in Agua Calientes
  • Train back to Ollantaytambo at 21:55 - please ask about upgrades to an earlier time
  • Bus back to Cusco
  • Guide (English or Spanish speaking)
  • Breakfast on day 2
  • Lunch on day 2

I also booked an extra entrance for the Machu Picchu mountain (70$). The entrance is limited to 2500 visitors per day, that's the reason why you need to book it at least 2 weeks before.

DAY 1

Wake up at 3am, then from Cusco to Ollantaytambo by bus. From Ollantaytambo I take the train to Agua Calientes, but we stopped before Agua Calientes to start the trip.

After a day in Agua Calientes, we woke up around 4am to get the first bus to Machu Picchu.

On this day, I visited the ruins of Machu Picchu and hiked the Machu Picchu mountain.
