Things to do:
You can climb Huayna Picchu (the mountain behind Machu Picchu). It takes 45 minutes to reach the top and the view from the top over Machu Picchu is worth it. (There is a limit of 400 people who are permitted to climb this, so if you want to do it, it is good to go immediately after your tour.) From the top of this mountain you can also walk down to the Moon Temple (a cave).
It takes 45 more minutes to get there and from there, a further hour walk to get back to Machu Picchu itself.
Walk up to the Sun Gate (45 minutes to 1 hour).
Walk to the Inca Bridge (40 minutes).
Please leave enough time to catch your train. It is a 20-minute bus ride from Machu Picchu to Aguas Calientes and buses leave when they are full.
It is also necessary to be at the train station in good time (20 minutes before).
If you want to have lunch down in the town, we advise leaving Machu Picchu by 2.30pm. Your train usually leaves at 5pm and you will arrive in Cusco at approximately 9pm. We will pick you up from the station and take you back to your hotel.
