Discover the breathtaking Lost City of Machu Picchu
Enjoy a journey by train with a glass dome opening up to the magnificent scenery
View the Lost City from the beautiful peak of Huayna Picchu
Board the train in the Sacred Valley and view the lush foothills of the Andes wind and rise into the sky. The peaks touch the clouds and the water rushes along and beneath the railway as you land in Aguas Calientes, the city along the base of Machu Picchu. Rise into the sky and arrive at the citadel of the Lost City, where the terraces climb along the mountainside and the feeling that overtakes you is as natural as breathing. Explore the ruins, uncover the mysteries, and make your way back to Cusco, finally leaving for home. You have explored through valleys and on top of mountains, into catacombs and on top of history. You have seen what Peru is made of and as your flight soars into the sky you know that the mysteries of Peru go beyond the whispers.
Board the luxurious train and travel through the beautiful Sacred Valley. The lush hills extend into mountain peaks and turn along the skyline. You can view the rushing water of the Urubamba River. The glass dome of the train allows you a panoramic view of the world outside that extends along the valley and to the foothills of the Lost City. The flourishing jungle brushes against the train. You can almost hear the birds chirping in the canopy. Land at Aguas Calientes at the base of the citadel, beneath the city of Machu Picchu.
Climb to the top of the plateau where terraces climb along the mountainside. Rock steps wind you beside the steep mountain and open up to the Lost City of Machu Picchu which views over the rushing river of the Urubamba Valley. The quiet air turns the picture more serene. The rock remains to rise up the hillside and come to rest at the top. Stroll through the history and spectacular ruins of the Inca Empire. Principal Temple sits over the majority of the city, its name originating from its solidity and near perfect construction. The rear corner is damaged from the uncertain ground causing the temple to sag slightly. The sun almost kisses the mountain peaks, the stones shine, and the Lost City whispers its mysteries before sunset.
Return to the spectacular ruins of Machu Picchu for another opportunity at exploring the relics of Inca fact and historical legend. The temples are spread along the citadel, at the top of the hill and along the edges of rocks. But the city itself is more than individual buildings; it is the sum of its components. It should be experienced as the collective city that it is, as opposed to individual structures on the mountain plateau. Walk through the stone ruins with the fragrance of morning dew evaporating from the hills and look at the height of the peak of Huayna Picchu, the mountain that stays over the Lost City like a vigilant eye.
With only 200 people permitted to climb Huayna Picchu per day, join the road less explored with a journey to the top. Sign your name in the history books, actually, as you will be required to sign into the guestbook at the booth at the base of the mountain. The damp, rocky foothills and lush trees spreading over the pass replace the cologne of fresh grass. The stairs can be steep at times and the rope that helps manage the walkway can be harsh; however, the mountains are wonderful, the air is fresh and the clouds linger below you as you climb. Arrive at the peak of Huayna Picchu where you can view the surrounding mountains in the eye and see the panorama of the valley beneath the Lost City. The only way you will be able to explain the vista of Machu Picchu will be “outstanding.” The climb down the mountainside will come with a cool breeze. The beauty of the Citadel opened up to you from below, shining with secrets. Reach Aguas Calientes and board the return train to Cusco where you can enjoy your evening with the sweet, tangy froth of a Pisco Sour.
