The beautiful, ancient site of Machu Picchu, Peru.
How to get there:
The only two ways to get to Machu Picchu are either to a) take a train, or b) hike.
If you decide to take a train – you will arrive at a small town called Aguas Calientes, also known as Machupicchu, or Machupicchu Pueblo, which is the closest train station to the site of Machu Picchu. You can also rent a room in one of the local hotels to save time when traveling to Machu Picchu, since the train ride from Cusco to Machu Picchu takes over 3 hours one way. You can also spend more time at the sight this way, as there is a lot to see and if you rush it you will feel like you haven’t experienced the place much.
If you decide to hike – you can either do a 1 day or 4 day treks, but you would have to go with a professional, local guide. You cannot go it alone as it is not permitted for your own safety.
