    Watch Out for Tour Buses!

    If you want to experience the mysticism of Machu Picchu without distractions, then you better plan to rise bright and early in order to catch a few quiet moments of sanctity and solitude....the tour buses arrive fully loaded by 9:00 am, and the place is transformed.

    Anyways, seeing Machu Picchu during a few reflective moments in the early morning mist can be quite beautiful. By 9 or 10, the sun has already risen high enough to begin burning off that mist which, only an hour or so earlier, had contributed to such an ethereal, wistful atmosphere.

    Special.

    train tickets to Machu Picchu

    Be sure to make train reservations in advance!!! You don`t have to pay until you pick them up, but the train gets full. Also be sure to take your passport when you pick up your tickets because they won`t give them to you without it.
