Peru - Day 5 Part I - Train to Machu Picchu
Well, the train really doesn't go to Machu Picchu. We got on in Ollantaytambo and rode it to the end of the line in Aguas Calientes which is at the foot of the mountain that Machu Picchu sits on. It is a 90 minute ride on a very comfortable and scenic rail line. There is no road to Aguas Calientes so the train is the only option unless you want to kayak (not a good idea), take a four day hike, or rent a helicopter.
