I had read that this was only a couple of miles round trip from town. Let me tell you, that is not correct. We used our GPS watch, and from the El Mapi it was a round trip hike of 8.3 miles so be sure you know that before setting out. The walk is certainly beautiful along the train tracks... More

After spending a day at Machu Picchu with so many people and a billion stairs, it was so refreshing to go off the beaten path and take a nice, quiet, scenic walk to the Mandor gardens. It's about a 2 hour walk in total, but you walk along the train tracks (it's safe, there are paths to the side) and... More

Aguas Calientes is not exactly the most amazing place I've ever been, just a staging post first Machu Picchu really, but these farmers are really lovely. We hiked to them along the railway tracks, if hike is a fair word, and the lovely plants and waterfall made that walk worthwhile. There are nice paths through them and we found the... More

For those with an interest in nature and local environs this is a must do complement to Macchu Picchu. This is the only easy option to experience the local ecology and the short interpretive walk includes an unbelievable assortment of orchids. Very inexpensive and only a short easy walk from aguas caliente. Please visit - highly recommended.

Enjoy a very nice hike to the waterfalls just an 50 minute hike from the main plaza. They have very nice views during the summer months

We heard of this place from a lovely person named Laith, who works at Incontri del pueblo Viejo in MPP. We had some time the next day, so my brother and I took the 2 or 3 mile along the railroad tracks. It was a great destination and a lovely walk. I only wish we had more time for the... More

My family and I enjoyed the hike from Aguas Calientes to Mandor Falls. Machu Picchu is such a beautiful area, but there are very few hiking trails around Aguas Calientes - so this is a real treat! The garden is nicely done with informational signs and rest huts along the way. The trail is very well maintained and follows the... More

Admittedly, we both love plants, but this was a pleasing experience. Some interesting specimens, clearly labelled, on a non-taxing route, which included waterfalls. In the hostel where you pay you can also buy a tasty lunch, drinks and organic bananas grown in the garden, 4 for 1 sole. Well worth the walk if you have time.

We came here because we had time to spare. I don’t regret it since I like to enjoy and explore the places I go. But this is one of a lifetime thing for me to do! I will not come back or recommend it to any one if you don’t have time. You pay 10 soles (around $3) per person... More

We were stranded in Aguas Calientes due to a town-wide strike that stopped the trains and closed all the restaurants and shops. We literally had nothing to do one day, so we walled to Mandor Gardens. The gardens are pretty, but not spectacular. The highlight, if you can call it that, is the waterfall at the end of the path.... More
