We picked up the train tickets at Ollantaytambo and were able to rescedule the return trip; got a privat guide at Aguas Calientes (we also speak the language.). In the morning we left our travel bag at the Hotel, but there are also lockers at the Park Entrance. The size of back packs does not seem to be stricly enforced. Having all the vouchers before the trip makes the experience so much smoother. The town does a great job of getting the visitors up and down the mountain.

To go there, you must be motivated because the site is not easily accessible, we left on Saturday for access to the site on Sunday from 7am. We chose the train option with panoramic view to go to Aguas Calientes, which allows you to cross the jungle, and to be at the foot of the mountains, a unique experience. Sunday morning, departure at dawn to take the bus to access the site, about 1 / 2h, this can also be done on foot. Magnificent experience: the ascent of Huayna Picchu, too bad the weather was capricious, the rain accompanied us during the whole ascent and at the top we were head in the clouds. It takes about 1 hour 30 minutes for this hike, knowing that beyond 2 hours, there is a fine. Fortunately, during the guided tour of Machu Picchu, the sun made a brief appearance and we were able to take photos. On our stay in Peru, it was the only day we had rain, no luck. To do: the thermal baths
