Getting there

  • Planes

    The gateway airport for this stretch of the Andes is Cusco International; from there it’s a 90-minute drive to Ollantaytambo, where you can pick up direct trains to Machu Picchu.
  • Automobiles

    Traffic restrictions in Aguas Calientes itself mean you should arrive by train to Machu Picchu station rather than take a car.
