Aguas Calientes

Also known as Machu Picchu Pueblo and the final stop before reaching Machu Picchu. Thanks to its location you can expect crowds as travellers stay here before their ascent to Machu Picchu. Here you will find thermal springs, restaurants, the Machu Picchu Museum, Quechua craft stalls and crowds.

Huayna Picchu

Very few climb this forested mountain but for those that do escape the crowds with stunning views of the main square of Machu Picchu from afar and the Urubamba canyon all around. Booking in advance is essential as there is only a limit of 400 climbers per day.Huayna Picchuz
