The beauty of Machu Picchu is difficult to describe because it provokes different reactions from visitors, from an intense calm to frenetic joy.
The Citadel can only visited through the Urubamba Valley, located on the outskirts of the main city of Cusco

Departing from Cusco city, there are different tour packages for all kind of travelers, being the Inca Trail the most well known among adventurers. To get a place for this superb trek you must book at least 6 months in advance due to permits and restrictions on the number of people accessing to the trail. The Inca trail access is regulated by the national government and gets very busy during the months of May to August due the dry season. During the dry season, you will have the advantage of seeing clearly most of the temples along the way on the trail and Machu Picchu during your visit. 


Getting around to Machu Picchu. 

To get to Machu Picchu from Cusco city can be done by train to its nearest point which is in the town of Aguas Calientes. This small town does not have access by road, being impossible to reach by car or bus. It is necessary to combine the means of transport including train, car, or walk. Once there, Machu Picchu is at the top of the mountain in Aguas Calientes.

Depending on your length of staying in Peru, there are few combinations you can explore before getting to this ancient city.  

For those travelers seeking a soft adventure, the 5 day Inca trail Express to Machu Picchu would be an excellent choice. This Machu Picchu vacation package includes a Cusco city tour, plenty of leisure time and a train journey from Cusco to a designated point where you will disembark in the mountains. You will walk for around 4 hours and see from the Sun gate, Machu Picchu at distance. Later on, you will divert your course to stop in Aguas Calientes and visit the ancient citadel next morning. This is a highly recommended option for those who don’t have too much time and want to enjoy the ancient citadel to the most.   

Alternative routes on your Machu Picchu tour packages.

Another alternative on the Machu Picchu tour packages is the 8-day Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu through the impressive Vilcabamba Range. This is a wonderful alternative for those who want a less traveled but exceptionally beautiful route to Machu Picchu. Salkantay is the second largest mountain in the entire area of Cusco, followed by Ausangate. For many locals, it is said that Salkantay is the "guardian" that emerges between the mountains and the jungle. Crossing over a pass in the middle of immense mountain peaks, Salkantay (6270m) and Humantay (6070m), you will be able to see incredible views of the glacier and the valleys where they are overhung. Salkantay is considered one of the 10 best treks in the world. Prices range from a 5 Day Salkantay trekking to Machu Picchu $ 805 USD and access are all year around so no matter which season you can get your booking to Machu Picchu via Salkantay in time.
