Did you know that there is more than one way to arrive at Machu Picchu, a World Heritage Site? We have found
an easy way, a hard way, and something in between. 13 Therefore, you should consider the options carefully
before you embark on this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The quickest and easiest way is to follow the crowd. Most of Machu Picchu’s visitors arrive from Cuzco by a
four-hour train ride that ends at a small town. 14 The hard way, on the other hand, involves joining a guided trek
of the Inca Trail. From a starting point that lies 88 km by train from Cuzco, you camp for three nights in the jungle and
walk to the mountaintop marvel.
15 For this, guides are also necessary. You begin by taking the 6:15 a.m. train from Cuzco station and get off
at a station 104 km down the line. Then, you are in for a roughly six-hour rainforest trek. Your first sight of Machu
Picchu comes after you have passed the final checkpoint and its near-vertical flight of 50 stone steps. 16 This is
where the descent into the ancient city begins—and, with luck, you will have arrived shortly before the last tourist bus
departs (at 5:30 p.m.). Then, you can have this place to yourself in conditions of near silence.
(A) How you approach Machu Picchu is going to affect your experience of it.
(B)Spreading before you, in the distance, is Machu Picchu’s labyrinth of temples, terraces, and plazas.
(C)It is thought that the site was chosen for its unique location and geological features.
(D)In 1981, an area of 325.92 square kilometers surrounding Machu Picchu was declared a “Historical Sanctuary”
