How to get there Machu Picchu
Traveling to Machu Picchu is one of
most gratifying and sought after trips. There is a certain sense of
serenity and enlightenment one feels when walking through the once
inhabited stonewalls of the 500-year-old Incan city. It is awe
inspiring to think of the effort put forth to build such an
expansive city in such a harsh, unforgiving environment The best way
to get there is to fly to Lima and take the earliest available
departure to Cusco.
Stay the first night in
Cusco city, then taking the train from Cusco is an easy trip, but
more adventurous souls may want to sign up for the 4day trek up the
Inca trail and discover Machu Picchu revealing itselft at sunrise.
Whichever way you decide to take, give yourself a day or two to get
used to the altitude.
