We start our journey from Olantaytambo, we took a minibus from the Plaza del Armas. We paid 30 soles. The day before, we tried to book it in advance but it was always more expensive, no need to bother so. The bus took around 4 hours, on a road really narrow.

You get off at Hydro Electrica, the start of the walk to Aguas Calientes. It takes a bit more than 2 hours on the side of the railway. If you look closely when you cross the first bridge you can already see a small part of Machu Picchu, we only saw that on the way back. Read more
