Train to Manchu Picchu

by janetlee

I am going to Manchu Picchu in May. I learnt from other members review that there was a backpacker train leaving Ollantaytambo for Manchu Picchu at about 05:10. However, I cannot find such train on perurail website. Is the backpacker train no longer available? or the train departing at 05:10 is no longer available? Any VT members with updated information will be much appreciated.

Things may have changed since we were in there, but the only train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes was a railcar service, the was certainly not a backpacker type train.

The PeruRail will change the train types and schedules to meet customer demand, so just because something was available in the past does not guarantee that it will be available in the future.

You can book the train by yourself. No need to have the help of a travel agent.

It seems that Perurail changed the name of the Backpacker into Expedition; I see one leaving Ollanta at 6.10 am (I checked for May 17).

However, there are, since a year or so, two other companies offering rail transportation Ollanta-MP, even with offices at Lima airport:

Suzanne - the "Backpacker" train has nothing to do with hiking the Inca Trail.

PeruRail operates (or did operate) three classes of trains between Cucso and Machu Picchu (Aguas Calientes) - The Hiram Brigham, which is ultra luxury, the normal toruist trains and the cheap, barebones backpacker train.

Thanks for your information.

I took the '5am train' 3 weeks ago, is still in service; you should leave cusco around 3am to get at Ollantaytambo around 4:30am-4:45am to have some time to do the line and buy the train tickets.

Mr. Tampa387

First of all: with Perurail? Or any of the other 2?

>>> 3 weeks ago <<<

Perurail changed its schedules from February. Look at the website.

>>> is still in service <<<

Better: "was in service".

Travel Tips for Cusco

Boleto Touristico

by bicycle_girl

The boleto touristico is a ticket that you purchase in order to enter to several museums/archeological sites in Cuzco and also in the Sacred Valley. For the cost of 70 Soles, you will be granted admission to 16 sites. Some of the time you do not have the choice to buy it to visit the sites, but you have the options to buy a partial ticket (for the Sacred Valley only, or for Cuzco only) and students get a discount providing they have a card with them. The boleto is valid for 10 days, and the visitting hours of each site, along with address and directions is indicated behind the ticket.

Easter in Cusco

by kare_ab

For the first time I celebrated Easter in a foreign country. Of course I was very interested to see, what other people do on such a holiday.

In Cusco there is a big ceremony taking place at the Plaza de Armas. For hourse people follow a Jesus-Staute to get afterwards a benediction in front of the cathedral.

Locals go home to eat a 12-course meal...

An interesting experience, also it might be hard to understand everything for no native speakers.

Mountain Biking in the Sacred Valley

by annie_c

Even if you are not an experienced cyclist, I would highly recommend taking a mountain biking trip with one of the tour companies (I went with Eric Adventures - $35.) The views are truly amazing and it is so peaceful to ride in the fields and see the Andes in the background. We rode to two places, Moray (Picture) and the Moras salt mines. I didn't feel comfortable doing the downhill sections so I took the bus for some of the sections. My boyfriend is an experienced mountain biker and he even said the down hill sections were quite dangerous. Bring sunglasses, it's mighty bright out there.

THE GREEN LANDS

by marcelo15

When i get at the white christ i see so many green lands around...what`s more the ruins of saqsahuaman are located in this area.
I realized that cusco is not a dry place, is a valley with beautiful lands like this...believe me is so nice to see it...

it is easy to walk, but a taxi is also fine...

by schlumpf

If you just want to visit the Cusco sites, it is sensless to take a car, a taxi or even a bike...the best way is to use the you own legs!

But if you want to visit all the arrea around Cusco, the easiest way is to take a taxi for the whole day, or better, take a taxi for a couple of days and organize all the tour with the taxi driver ...for details check my tip (must see activity)

Taxi are quiet cheap, moreover if you share the cost!
