DAY 4: AGUAS CALIENTES - MACHUPICCHU – OLLANTAYTAMBO - CUSCO The most important day for most of the adventurous to visit Machu Picchu early morning after breakfast in the hotel very early we go to the bus station to catch the bus up to Machu Picchu in order to be in Machu Picchu by 6:00 am because Machu Picchu opens at 6:00 am. The only time that we got to see Machu Picchu with no people is only in the mornings because later Machu Picchu is crowded. We always try being the first ones in Machu Picchu to enjoy it better and see the sunrise. Afterwards the guide will get you around Machu Picchu doing the tour for about 2.5 hour in order to get to know very well about Machu Picchu. Then you have free time to explore Machu Picchu by yourselves. If you booked the extra tickets for Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain you are going to climb one of these mountains. Machu Picchu is located in the middle of nowhere and up on the granite mountain edge, there is no any records about Machu Picchu of the Incas time. It is not mentioned in any of the chronicles of the Spanish conquistadors and archaeologists. Machu Picchu was under the dense vegetation until July 24th 1911. When the American historian Hiram Bingham (who was in search of Vilcabamba) discovered it that is why he called it "the lost city of the Incas". At least you are going spend 8 to 9 hour in Machu Picchu. Then you have to go back to Aguas Calientes town in order to catch the train back to Ollantaytambo town. From Ollantaytambo transfer you back to Cusco by car and we drop you in your hotel in Cusco.
