You can take time for lunch. Then we will continue by bus to the Hydroelectric Plant. We will start our walk along the rail for about 3 hours until we reach the town of Aguas Calientes. If you don’t want to walk, you can book a train from Hydroelectric to Aguas Calientes for 35 USD (book in advance),

Upon arrival at our hostel, we will rest until dinner, or you can go to the hot springs and enjoy a relaxing bath, and after that, you can go for dinner (included).



Finally, the big day arrived, the ascent to the famous citadel. Early morning, we will have a good breakfast, then start our walk at 4.30 am towards the archeological complex. Once in Machu Picchu, our guide will start a guided tour for 2 hours, and you will see the Main Plaza, the Circular Tower, the Sacred Solar Clock, the Royal Quarters, etc. After the tour, you will have free time to explore, take pictures or walk through the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu.

After enjoying the magic of Machu Picchu, we will return to Aguas Calientes around 11.00 am, where we will begin our return on foot to the Hydroelectric (approximately 3hrs), where our bus awaits us. Once we have arrived at the hydroelectric power station, we will start our return trip by bus to Cusco. We will be arriving by 9:00 pm approx.

IMPORTANT: Try to be in Aguas Calientes by 11 am and start walking to Hydroelectric so you can catch de bus back to Cusco on time. We can´t wait so long for you, unfortunately. We have to arrive on time for Cusco.

The drop-off will be at Plaza Regocijo, close to Plaza de Armas. We do this due the traffic in Cusco city by night is chaotic, and the arrival at your hostel door may take too much time. We hope you can understand.
