We want to take this opportunity to give you some tips and recommendations to make the most of your visit to the ancient Inca citadel and make it a wonderful and memorable experience.
The majestic Machu Picchu can be access only by train from the city of Cusco or the Sacred Valley, therefore we suggest you make train reservations early, especially from May to September, and for the Inca Trail, hikers should book with months in advance and arrange for permits. Rail companies will ask for your original passport when checking-in. Try to avoid inconveniences and remember to bring it with you before leaving the hotel.
While visiting the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, please follow the posted rules that will help in preserving its natural and cultural beauty.
Machu Picchu means 'Old Mountain' in Quechua, the language of the Incas. This old mountain is often covered in clouds, and the sheer drop at the edges of the ruins can be unsettling
We also suggest staying at Machu Picchu for at least two days. On the first you can wonder around the ancient settlement, and then on the second day, you can climb the Wayna Picchu Mountain, which means 'Young Mountain'. To do so; you should reserved and paid for ahead of time, since entrance to Wayna Picchu has an additional cost and only a 400 hundred travelers are admitted per day.
