Machu Picchu, Peru’s most well-known attraction, draws travelers from all over the world. However, the journey to Machu Picchu can be a little challenging due to its unique location. So, we’ve included a guide here on how to get to Machu Picchu Peru.

How to travel to Machu Picchu?

There are four ways to get to Machu Picchu Peru: train, bus, and hiking.

Option 1: Traveling from Cusco to Machu Picchu by train

Poroy Station in Cusco, which is about 18 kilometers from the city center, is where you’ll catch a train to Machu Picchu Peru. You can take the train to Agues Calientes; the trip takes about 3 hours and 50 minutes from Poroy Station to Agues Calientes Station. Peru Rail and Inca Rail provide a variety of train alternatives, including premium cabins, economical cabins, and observation cabins with incredible views. Choose between taking a bus or a hike from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu. It’s 9.5 kilometers long and will take about 2 hours and 50 minutes to hike. It will take the bus for around 25 to 30 minutes, and the ride is very absolutely gorgeous.

Option 2: Traveling from Cusco to Machu Picchu by bus

From Cusco’s main square, it takes 15 minutes to walk or 5 minutes to take a taxi to the bus stop on Avenida Grau, where the bus leaves for Ollantaytambo. These buses have a maximum capacity of 16 passengers, and because there are no set fares, you must simply split the expense of the trip with your fellow travelers. You can catch the train to Aguas Calientes once you get to the Poroy station in Ollantaytambo. You can then go from Aguas Caliente to Machu Picchu Peru by bus. Bus travel takes between 25 and 30 minutes from Aguas Caliente to the Machu Picchu ruins.

Option 3: Hiking to Machu Picchu

The Classic Inca Trail and the Lares Inca Trail are two well-known trekking routes that will take you to Machu Picchu Peru. Each of the Inca trails offers stunning panoramic vistas and gets you through indigenous towns, and historical ruins as you pass on foot.

  • The Classic Inca Trail is by far the more well-known route to Machu Picchu, but it is also the busiest and more challenging of the two hikes, requiring three nights of camping. Remember that your journey will start when the train stops at Kilometre 82, which is located between Ollantaytambo and Agues Calientes if you’re hiking the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

  • Compared to the Classic Inca Trail, the Lares Inca Trail is a bit simpler and requires only two nights of camping. Lares is the starting point of the Lares Inca Trail, which ends in Ollantaytambo. You will take a train from the trail’s end to Agues Calientes, where you will spend the night. To get to Machu Picchu, take a bus from Agues Calientes. Bus travel takes between 25 and 30 minutes from Aguas Caliente to the Machu Picchu ruins.
