This day we will start very early at 4:00 a.m. the first part of the trip is flat for ½ hour and for 1 hour we ascend the road to Machupicchu where we will arrive at approximately 6 a.m. to be able to see and enjoy the sunrise and have a visit in Machupicchu with our professional guide for an average of 2 hours of tour and then you will have free time to do your personal exploration in the citadel of Machu Piccho.

“Machupicchu is incredible, and seeing the sun break the mountains and illuminate the Inca stone city is a unique opportunity in life for all visitors in Peru.”

After your visit to Machu Piccho, you have to make a descent to the city of Aguas Calientes to board your train back at the time you can choose.


For the entrances to Machu Picchu have 3 different options to visit the Inca city:

  • First option: Entrance to Machu Picchu (this option is included for all tours).
  • Second option: Entrance to Machu Picchu + Huaynapicchu mountain.
  • Third option: Entrance ticket to Machu Picchu + Montaña Machu Picchu.

** The tickets for these 3 options are valid only for one day. “For example,” it is impossible to do with the same entrance ticket one day to visit Machupicchu and the other day to Huaynapicchu mountain. “For example” It can not be done with the same Huaynapicchu Ticket and Machu Picchu Mountain because the 3 entry options to Machu Picchu are clear and specific.

** But if you want to make an extra mountain like Montaña Huaynapicchu (you must book 4 months in advance for the high season from May to September) or mountain Machu Picchu (1/2 monthly advance); and we also recommend having one more night in Aguas Calientes or return by train (this recommendation has enough time to visit Machupicchu and up to Huaynapicchu or Machu Picchu mountain)

** Train schedules available from Cusco (Peru Rail / Inca Rail) – Ollantaytambo – Aguas Calientes (village machupicchu):

  • They are anticipated between ½ month and 1 month before their trip to Machu Picchu. Especially high season between the schedules (from May to September) of the train expedition: travel distance (2 hours x train) and (2 hours plus x bus) ..


** Important points for salkantay:

The excursion varies in price because we include a private taxi from Sahuayacu beach to hydroelectric (3 day).
