DAY 02: MACHU PICCHU - CUSCO
Early wake up to have breakfast at the hotel in order to reach into Machu Picchu on time to see the most iconic inca constructions almost without people. There is two ways to reach to the main entrance of Machu Picchu
- 1. BUS UP
- 2. WALK UP
If you would like to go up to Machupicchu by bus you must buy a bus ticket in aguas calientes a night before. Early in the morning around 4:30 am we go to the bus stations to line up in order to catch the first buses to Machupicchu. The buses start leaving at 5:30 am from aguas calientes to Machupicchu, 25 minutes bus ride to the main entrace of Machupicchu. then we go into machupicchu when they open at 6:00 o'clock in the morning.
Walking up to Machupicchu takes 1:20 hours at regular pace. Start walking at 4:00 am in the morning from aguas calientes to the first check point located right at the base of Machu Picchu which open at 5:00. This check point is only for the hikers where you must show your entrace to Machupicchu and your passport after that you have to walk up stairs to machupichcu which takes 45 minute walk you have to make almost 1700 inca steps
The idea to walk up to machupichu is to beat the buses to be the first ones into Machupicchu. Once at the main check point you go into Machupicchu
Any options you may take the idea is to reach Machupicchu in the morning when they open it . once inside you have time to enjoy the amazing views and photographing then we provide you 2 hours of Machupicchu guided tour.
Afterwards you have free time to explore Machupicchu in your own. After 5 hour in Machupicchu you have to walk back to Hidroelectrica in order to catch the car back to Cusco.
If you are thinking to do the extra hiking options in Machupicchu like climbing machupichcu monataña o huaynapicchu mountain is better to spend an extra night in aguas calientes and returning to cusco on the third day, Because to do this extra options you need at least 8 to 9 hours to explore the whole park of Machupicchu
