This hour-and-a-half to two-hour train journey is one of the finest in the world. Much of the path winds along the rushing Vilcanota river and snakes through gorges cut into the bases of massive mountainsides, offering passengers dramatic views of the Andean landscape as the train descends from high altitude plains down through the cloud forest. Upon arrival in Aguas Calientes, the town at the base of Machu Picchu, you will be met at the train station and accompanied to the bus station for a 25-minute ride up to the secluded citadel, which is surrounded by a cloud forest inhabited by orchids and hummingbirds. Next, you will meet your expert English-speaking guide for a tour of the most important sites in Machu Picchu, including the Intihuatana (Sun dial stone), the Sun Temple, and the Room of 3 Windows. Discovered in 1911 by an American history professor, Machu Picchu is justifiably ranked as one of the â€śmust seeâ€ť archaeological sites in the world. Here, royal palaces, temples and astronomical observatories cling to a granite spur some 2,000 feet above the valley floor, affording spectacular views of the cloud-wreathed Andes and the Urubamba River far below.
