Machu Picchu Cocalmayo by Bus (2 days / 1 night)
This is a nice alternative to visit Machu Picchu, combining bus and train, as it is accessible anytime of year and mainly, during the high season, when the tourist train services can´t face the demand, going by the new itinerary of the Cusco / Quillabamba asphalted road, passing by the Sacred Valleys villages, the Málaga Mountain Pass (4,350 m .a.s.l.), the highest point along the way, going downhill to get to Santa Teresa and continue on a short stretch of road, to the Intiwatana train station, and from there, travel by train to Machu Picchu Pueblo, for just 10 kilometers .
But, before that, you´ll have enjoyed the delights Cocalmayo´s Thermo-medicinal Baths offer, in a true natural paradise.
