Often. the train leaves at 11:30 am (time may change depending on availability and changes to timetable). After a 3.5-hour journey of majestic views of the Sacred Valley you arrive to Aguas Calientes (Hot Springs Town) where you will spend the night.

The surroundings of this town are in the middle of a deep and green valley crossed by a river.

Visit the Machu Picchu 'Manuel Chávez Ballón' museum and orchid exhibition. This is open from 9am to 4.30pm, and is a 35 minute walk down the road from Aguas Calientes to Puente Ruinas. It is a very illustrative museum that gives you an interesting introduction to Machu Picchu.
