The Quickest and Safest Way to Get to Machu Picchu

Well, unless you’re interested in hiking through Machu Picchu Mountain Range and up the mountain, the quickest and safest way to get there is by taking one of the many trains to Machu Picchu.

Before we proceed with the information we want to point out that train tours are already included in any of our Peru Tour Packages to Machu Picchu.

You can find train stations in the following locations: Poroy, 13 km (8 miles) from Cusco, Ollantaytambo found within the Sacred Valley, 89 km (56 miles) from Cusco, and there’s also a train that leaves from the Urubamba valley. Now, the biggest choice you’ll have to make is when choosing which train company to use as there are three competing train companies. PeruRail is the main one, but there are two smaller companies known as Inca Rail and Machu Picchu Train.

Peru Rail Train

Peru Rail Train has a wide range of different kinds of trains to accommodate wildly different budgets. This includes the ‘Expedition’, the ‘Vistadome’, and the ‘Hiram Bingham Luxury Train, but we’ll get into that a little later on. You can check on a comparison of Perurail vs Inca Rail.

The best option used to be to catch one of the trains for your Machu Picchu Luxury Train coming all the way from Cusco, seeing as most if not all of the visitors arrive there first.

However, as of April 1st of 2009, Cusco’s main station no longer provides that service and trains must leave from Poroy station, 13 kilometers (8 miles) west of Cusco. This means you miss out on some beautiful scenery as you go up Picchu Hill, but you still get an incredible experience as you travel to Machu Picchu, regardless of which train service you acquire.

Things to Do in Cusco

Small and easy to navigate, the city of Cusco is a destination for adventurers. It’s jam-packed with a fascinating history of the Inca Empire and Spanish conquest that has been amazingly well preserved and restored.

When to visit?
