The day before your excursion, the guide will meet with you to discuss your itinerary. Your Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu tour involves the experience of visiting the famous Pisac Market, Pisac Ruins and Ollantaytambo archeological site. You will then take the train to Machu Picchu and spend one night in Aguas Calientes before visiting the site the next day. The next day you will wake up early and take the bus up to Machu Picchu. There, you will visit the Machu Picchu city and have the chance to climb Huayna Picchu mountain (must be purchased in advance) or walk around the ruins.
The antique citadel of Machu Picchu (Old Peak in Quechua native language) is a very popular worldwide tourist attraction and the most famous Inca architectural work. It is located at 122 km far away from Cusco in the department of the same name. The Inca citadel stands at an altitude of 2,430 meters above sea level on the Machu Picchu Mountain, close to the Urubamba River, in the midst of a lush vegetation of a cloud forest. The majestic beauty of the natural landscape surrounding this sanctuary as well as the archaeological value of the ruins make it a UNESCO World Heritage site recognized all over the world.
After spending a great time here, you will return to Aguas Calientes to take the train back to the station and be dropped-off at the main square in Cusco.
