EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING TO MACHU PICCHU

We understand that you have many questions, traveling to Machu Picchu is easy but sometimes you must consider important points, so that your experience in Machu Picchu is the best.

 

What is the difference between the circuits of Machu Picchu?

Machu Picchu has 4 circuits designed to make your experience profitable without having too much agglomeration in certain points of the archaeological center. We invite you to watch the following video where we explain more about the circuits.

Circuit 1 allows you to observe the guardian's house, near the place where you can take the iconic photo of Machupichu. Additionally, you will be able to observe other places of the citadel among which are the viewpoint of the temple of the sun, granite chaos, and the square of the pisonay.

Circuit 2 is more complete than circuit 1, since it gives you the opportunity to enjoy many more archaeological sites such as the square of the temples, the pyramid of the Intiwatana and the sacred rock.

Circuit 3 goes through the lower part of Machupichu and also allows you to enjoy the Inca citadel from another view. It also allows you to observe archaeological areas such as the qolqas, the agricultural area and the Inka's house complex.

Circuit 4 is more complete than circuit 3, since it gives you the opportunity to observe symbolic places such as the ceremonial fountains, the set of water mirrors and the temple of the condor.

We invite you to watch the following video where we explain more about the circuits.

 

What is the difference between Huayna Picchu, Machu Picchu mountain, Huchuy Picchu and Machu Picchu?

  • Machu Picchu Mountain: It is a viewpoint located in front of the Huayna Picchu mountain from where you will have a different perspective to the classic photo of the sanctuary. Its paths are less steep than those of Huayna Picchu, with stairs made by the Incas.
  • Machu Picchu - Machu Picchu: Already includes the archaeological city from the top of the classic photo to the slopes of Huayna Picchu

What recommendations should I take to prevent altitude sickness?

The most recommended way to prevent altitude sickness is progressive adaptation, in other words, ascend moderately to adapt to the decrease in oxygen as you gain altitude.

We recommend spending at least one day in Cusco without extreme physical exertion to adapt to the altitude.Stay hydrated, drink at least 4 to 5 liters of water while in Cusco. Sleep at least 8 hours a day before your tours, keep your body unstressed without too much physical effort.

As a natural remedy, you can drink coca tea or chew it during your stay. The coca leaf will help you to oxygenate more constantly.

First stage: You will have to buy your train ticket at the offices located in the main square, or through the website of the two train agencies "Peru Rail" and "Inca Rail".
