I recommend going to Machu Picchu to see the sunrise going over Huayna Picchu. It is very quiet at Machu Picchu until about 9:00 A.M. when it starts getting crowded. It is a great place to visit even in December.

Stunning views of the city from the Sun Gate, recommend you get there as early as you can and do this first so it is peaceful, then tour the city. A day is enough to do this and the city, but if you're fit and have the time (not us) there is another hike up what looks like a vertical... More

My friends and I stayed at the Pakarina Hostal in Aguas Calientes, and some of us decided that we were feeling extra ballsy and wanted to walk from the village all the way to the top of the Machu Picchu mountain, instead of taking the $12 bus from the village to the visitor's center. So, we woke up at 4:30... More

Breathtaking. I recommend hiking Huayna Picchu and getting the amazing view back over Machu Picchu. Remember it is in a cloud forrest so there will always be bad visibility, wait 5 minutes and it will clear. It's a tough hike up Huayna Picchu but worth it. Machu Picchu itself is amazing. Lammas graze the grounds and there's a number of... More

What to say? Wonderful place. Everyone has to go at least once. Bring your own water and some coca based sweets to deal with the soroche (altitude sickness) and a good camera for tons of photos.

Machu Picchu has to rank among the most marvelous sites to see in the world. Do not miss this place. It is all you have seen in the pictures and more. Words cannot do justice to this place. Breathtaking and amazing.

I've seen pictures of Machu Picchu and it looks amazing, but seeing it in real life doesn't even compare. It is so immense and huge. Absolutely beautiful. In the morning it is really cloudy so I would recommend going in the afternoon. Also all the people leave at about 1 to go to lunch. So you get better pictures after... More

Almost thought to give up on it, but don't! It's crowded and very touristic, but what you're gonna see here is so amazing! Could have just sit and gaze for the entire day... Not much to say, it's very famous worldwide. Prices: train - 75$ one way from Machu Picchu, bus from the city bellow agua calientes is 12$ one... More

If you’re reading this, chances are good that you’ve already decided to go to Machu Picchu, in which case, good decision. I have just visited it for the second time – the first was 41 years ago in 1976 – and I was just as impressed now as then. I won’t go into detail about the attraction itself. Many others... More
