Machu Picchu Guide

The Ultimate Guide to Exploring Machu Picchu on Budget

When you say Peru, first thing that comes to most people’s mind is Machu Picchu. If you are a fan of mystery shows, you probably heard a lot of stories associating Machu Picchu into some out-of-this-world beings. The ruins are built with perfection and it remained undiscovered until 1911.  The fact that it was perched on the top of the mountains hidden away by the mist made it seem that it was not intended to be seen at all. Even the Spanish conquistadors never found this site. Until now, it remains a mind –boggling mystery and that made it very popular among individuals from all over the world.

If you are one of those people intrigued about it, exploring the ruins in person would be the best option and this step-by-step guide would help you achieve your ultimate Machu Picchu dream.Machu Picchu Guide

How to get to Machu Picchu

Travelers heading to Machu Picchu stop first at Cusco to acclimatize. This ancient city was once the capital of the Incan empire. There are two ways to get there:

  • By plane – There are daily departures to Cusco from Lima and the travel time takes only 1 hour and 20 minutes. Airlines operating in Cusco are Latam, Avianca, Peruvian Airlines, LC Peru, StarPeru, Viva Air and Amaszonas. Latam is the most popular one because of the number of daily flights they serve. You can search for flights using skyscanner to compare prices from different providers.
  • By bus – This is the most economical way to get to Cusco and is only recommended for travelers who have plenty of time to spare. The journey takes about 18-27 hours depending on the route you choose. Most bus companies take the quickest route (about 18-21 hours) by crossing the Andes mountains which is not quite safe since a lot of hijacking has been reported in that area. The safest option would be to book a hop-on hop-off pass with Peru Hop. They break down the long journey by providing stops in certain areas like Paracas, Huacachina, Arequipa and Puno.

If you head directly to Cusco from Lima, expect to experience altitude sickness upon your arrival. Cusco sits at 3,399 m.a.s.l..

Machu Picchu Guide

Inca Rail

Inca Rail is a newer company which started 10 years after Peru Rail. They have fewer departure schedule as compared to Peru Rail.

    1. Presidential Class
      • The most expensive service provided by Inca Rail which runs any time of the year upon requests only.
    2. First Class
      • Price starts from $109 and includes welcome drinks and meals. It has large windows and more legroom.
    3. Executive Class
      • The cheapest train service of Inca Rail with prices starting from $51 and includes a light snack. It has smaller side and rooftop windows compared to First Class train service.

Train Stations

  • Poroy – The nearest train station from Cusco is located at Poroy which is a 20-minute drive away from Cusco. You can take a taxi or a colectivo to get there. Taxi would costs around __ while collectivo would be $3 (10 PEN).
  • Urubamba
  • Ollantaytambo – Most budget travelers take the train from Ollantaytambo since it is nearer to Machu Picchu and therefore cheaper. The best way to get there is to take a colectivo from Cusco for the price of $3 (10 PEN). Travel time takes approximately one hour and 45 minutes.

Keep in mind that there are no train stations located in the Inca citadel itself. Even though both train stations advertise that their end route is Machu Picchu, they actually stop at the town of Aguas Calientes. From there, you can either take a 20-minute bus ride or do the 3-hour hike to Machu Picchu.

Bus to Machu Picchu from Aguas Calientes

This is the most popular option among tourists. One-way ticket costs $12 for a 20-minute ride up to the ruins. The bus brings you right at the entrance of Machu Picchu. Tickets can be bought in advance at http://www.consettur.com or at the town of Aguas Calientes in small booths situated by the edge of the bridge. It has a sign which reads “Venta Oficial de Ticket de Bus”. There is no seat guaranty so you have to be at the bus stop early in the morning if you want to get to Machu Picchu before the gates are open. Most people rush at the bus loading area in order to snap a photo of the ruins with no crowd in it. At 5 am, the queue is already very long and by this I mean already hundreds of people.

Hike to Machu Picchu from Aguas Calientes

There is a trail going up to Machu Picchu but only very few brave souls venture into it because it is extremely steep and the view is not that charming. The idea is also to snap a good photo of yourself with the ruins as background and doing the hike up would surely make you look haggard and sweaty. Also, if you are planning to hike the Huaynapicchu and Montana Picchu, you should spare your energy then for these two mountains since the views are really remarkable. I did the Campeano Trail but during the return back to Aguas Calientes and I assure you it was not easy. It took me almost two hours to reach the town. Imagine how much harder could be the climb up.

The trail head is very easy to find. Just follow the route of the buses heading to Machu Picchu until you get to the large metal bridge where you have to do a sharp turn left. By the edge of the bridge, you have to turn right and then you will see a large sign which marks the trail head. The trail is very well marked so you don’t have to worry about getting lost. You will also be taking a different path than the busses but in some instances it intersects with the road and you need to be careful while crossing because most buses are over speeding.

Hiking trails to Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu as day tour from Cusco

For those of you who have a very tight itinerary, a day tour of Machu Picchu from Cusco would be possible. You can book via tour operator or have your DIY trip.

Most tour operator’s prices include hostel pick-up, train tickets, bus tickets, tour guide and entrance to the Inca citadel with costs ranging from $325-$365 depending on the train service (Expedition or Vistadome) chosen.

If you want a DIY day trip to Machu Picchu, you need to book everything from the train tickets, bus tickets, Machu Picchu entrance fee and Tour Guide. Here are some things you need to know before planning your trip:

  1. Train tickets can be bought online or in person in Cusco.
  2. Bus tickets can be bought in Aguas Calientes or beforehand.
  3. Machu Picchu Tickets can be bought in Cusco, Aguas Calientes or online. However, during peak seasons, it is recommended to purchase tickets beforehand because there is a limit on the number of tickets sold. 
  4. The government declared that starting July 1, 2017, all tourists entering Machu Picchu must be accompanied by a registered tour guide. This rule, however, is not yet strictly implemented (I did not have a guide myself). But in case you are blocked from entry because you don’t have a guide, don’t fret out because you can grab one just by the entrance.
  5. If you prefer to do the afternoon tour, then you can take the earliest train in Poroy which typically arrives in Aguas Cailentes around 10 AM. However, I don’t recommend this itinerary because the last train back to Cusco are departing at 4:12 PM (Inca Rail) and 05:23 PM (Peru Rail). You have to make sure you get to the station 30 minutes before departure and you need to take into account the long queue for the bus during your return to the town. If you don’t like rushing, you can buy a return ticket going to Ollantaytambo since they have departures until 9 PM and from there you can take a colectivo to Cusco. Most colectivos still operate until 11:30 PM to take passengers from the last train arriving from MP.
  6. If you want to tour Machu Picchu in the morning, then I suggest you head to Ollantaytambo via a colectivo and book the earliest train of Peru Rail which typically arrives at Aguas Calientes around 6:35 am. This is the one I am recommending since it gives you time to stroll around the town after the tour and there is no rushing to get to the train station to catch your ride.

Machu Picchu Tickets

Where to buy

  1. At Ministerio de Cultura in Cusco
    • Ministeria de Cultura is located in Casa Garcilaso on Calle Garcilaso near Museo de Chocolate. They are open from Mon-Sat, 7AM-8PM. You need to bring your passport with you in order to purchase tickets.
  2. At Machu Picchu Cultural Centre in Aguas Calientes

  3. Online at the website http://www.machupicchu.gob.pe
  • A lot of people have expressed their frustrations when booking from this site because it is too slow and does not even load at all most of the time. Also, the only acceptable mode of payment is via a Visa credit card.

Quick Tips: During high season, tickets sold out very fast so you need to buy in advance as there are only limited number of tickets sold. You can check the government website for the number of tickets available (see photo on left side).

Ticket Prices

Machu Picchu GuideMachu Picchu Main Grounds (AM/PM Turn)         
Adult: 152 Soles
Student (12 yrs up): 77*
Student (up to 12 yrs): 70*
Child (under 8 yrs): FREE
This is the entrance to the main grounds of Machu Picchu. Tourists must choose their preferred visiting hours (6-12 PM or 12 PM – 5:30 PM). 2430 m
Machu Picchu GuideMachu Picchu + Huaynapicchu Mountain
Adult: 200 Soles
Student (12 yrs up): 125*
Student (up to 12 yrs): 118*
Child (under 8 years): FREE
This includes entry to the main grounds of the ruins plus the entry to the Huaynacpicchu mountain which is overlooking the ruins. It is busier compared to Montaña but has ruins along the way. Hikers must choose between 2 time slots (7-8AM or 9-10AM). It has an elevation of 2,720 m. The climb takes about 1.5-2 hours and the descent about 45 minutes.
Machu Picchu GuideMachu Picchu + Montaña Mountain
Adult: 200 Soles
Student (12 yrs up): 125*
Student (up to 12 yrs): 118*
Child (under 8 years): FREE
This includes entry to the ruins plus the entry to Montaña. A taller, less busier peak overlooking the ruins. Hikers must choose between 2 time slots (7-8AM or 10-11AM). It has an elevation of 3,082 m. The climb takes about 2-2.5 hours and the descent about 1 hour and 30 minutes.

 

 

So what should you choose between these tickets? For those of you who are not used to strenuous walking, then climbing the Montaña and Huayna Picchu is not for you. The trail is steep and the altitude might also slow you down giving you lesser time to explore the ruins. Remember that there is a limit in the time you can spend inside the Inca Citadel. Aside from the ruins, there are other routes worth visiting also like the Sun Gate and Inca Bridge.

*You may notice that the prices indicated here includes a special student price but when you go to the government website, you can only buy tickets for Adults. This is because the tickets must be obtained in person either in Cusco or Aguas Calientes and you have to bring a passport with you and the student visa granted by the embassy or consulate of Peru. The full details about this rule is found here (NOTE: the document is in Spanish).

Overnight options in Machu Picchu

If you can shed off $588 for an overnight stay, then the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge may be the perfect choice for you. It is the only accommodation located right next to the Machu Picchu main entrance and provides a breathtaking view of the Inca citadel.

Most tourists stay in Aguas Calientes since there are more sleeping options. Be aware that some hostels there charge ridiculously high prices, such as 100 soles per night for a double room, so try to look further and you will find some other decent hostels with prices from 45 – 50 soles per night.

I actually came to Aguas Calientes without an accommodation reserved in advance. Local police officers roaming the streets helped me find a decent, cheap hostel. They recommended the Hostal Qori Miski. It is not registered in booking.com or any other booking sites but the property is clean and has wifi connection also. The owner does not speak English but she was very nice and attentive to my needs.

What to pack for Machu Picchu

  • Sunglass, hat and sunblock – The sunlight is abundant in Machu Picchu so in order to avoid getting sunburns don’t forget to pack these essentials.
  • Waterproof jacket or poncho – Rain is possible any time of the year because of Machu Picchu’s location so bringing a rain jacket or poncho could save your day. Make sure to pack something light and can be layered. In the town of Aguas Calientes, there are street vendors selling plastic ponchos in case you are already on your way to the ruins and forgot to pack one. The vendors are already roaming the street as early as 5 am.
  • Food and water – There are only two eating options in Machu Picchu and they are really pricey. Some restaurants in Aguas Calientes are selling packed lunch. They are cheaper but still not as cheap if you buy from Cusco. If you are coming to Machu Picchu as a day tour from Cusco, I advise to buy pack food from the latter as Aguas Calientes and Machu Picchu are hugely inflated. Technically, food is not allowed inside Machu Picchu but I actually never had my bag checked upon entry.
  • Camera – Machu Picchu is definitely in everyone’s bucket list so it would really be great to bring some good camera with long battery life in order to capture all angles and not miss any part of it.
  • Passport – You cannot enter the ruins if you do not have your passport with you. Also, just right outside Machu Picchu, there is a small booth where you can get a Machu Picchu stamp on your passport.
  • Ticket and booking number – Of course, ticket is very important for entry however the booking number is more important. In case you lost your ticket, there is no need to fret out if you have your booking number also with you. Just head to the guard by the entrance and show the paper with the number and you can get inside already.

When to go to Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is open to the public year-round, even during holidays. The busiest time is from June to August but you should always expect crowds. Rainy season is from November to April with the heaviest rain in February. The weather is warmer during this season as compared to the months May to October. In February, the Inca Trail is closed the whole month to public for maintenance. Dry season is from May to October. You can expect clear skies and sunny days but the nights are cold.

Overall, I think the best time to visit is on May, September and October for great weather and to ditch the huge crowd. Note however that due to Machu Picchu’s location, rain is possible any time.

How much did a Machu Picchu trip cost me?

As you all know, getting into these famous Incan ruins is far from cheap but there are certain ways to see Machu Picchu if you are on a budget. I have summarized below all the costs I’ve incurred during my trip to Machu Picchu.

DESCRIPTION  PRICE 
Entrance (Machu Picchu main grounds)  $47.00
One-night stay Aguas Calientes (dormitory)  $8.00
Train to Aguas Calientes from Ollantaytambo (return)  $115.00
Bus – one way  $12.00
Food & Water (breakfast, lunch and dinner)  $16.00
Colectivo (Cusco-Ollantaytambo) – return  $6.15
 TOTAL  $204.15
  • I purchased an entrance ticket for the Machu Picchu main grounds only. There is really no need to climb the Huayna Picchu or the Moñtana Picchu to get a panoramic view of the ruins. At the Guardhouse area, you can already get the classic Machu Picchu shot.
  • Accommodations in Aguas Calientes are a bit pricey but if you try to look further pass the football field, you will find some cheap and decent hostels.
  • The only way to get to Machu Picchu is through hiking or by embarking into one of the trains operated by Peru Rail and Inca Rail. Neither of these two options is cheap. However, you can save a lot by choosing the latter.
  • Though both train operators advertised that their end route is Machu Picchu, it actually stops at a town called Aguas Calientes. From there, you can either climb your way up through the Campeano trail or book a 20-minute bus ride until the Machu Picchu entrance. I found the latter really expensive. But since I don’t want to stress myself out by climbing a very steep trail on the way up, I booked a one-way bus up to MP and did the Campeano trail on my return to the town. This way, I’ve managed to look fresh in photos and save myself $12.
  • Food and water in Aguas Calientes is hugely inflated. One meal costs 30 soles and up and water is not free. However, there are still certain restaurants where you can buy a meal for the price of 15 soles which is good already for two people. Bottled water is also very expensive. 2.5L costs 2 soles in Cusco but it costs 6 soles in Aguas Calientes. You can lower down your spending if you buy your food and water from Cusco.
  • In order to save a few dollars, I took the train from Ollantaytambo. To get there, I rode a colectivo from Cusco for the price of 10 soles. They operate from 2 am and leaves the moment it gets full. Just make yourself prepared to hear locals shouting here and there because they’d like to leave right away.
  • I’ve spent zero dollars for tour guide because I decided not to get one. Actually, all tourists are required to have a tour guide upon entering Machu Picchu since July 2017. However, this wasn’t really strictly implemented. If ever you are blocked from entry, don’t fret out. There are a couple of them right outside the Machu Picchu entrance. Here is a summary of all the important Machu Picchu structures in case you decided to go without a guide.

Machu Picchu is certainly in everyone’s bucket list. However, most people hesitate because they think it is too pricey. Hopefully this guide will help you achieve your Machu Picchu dream trip. It certainly shouldn’t be missed out because it is absolutely amazing!

  1. Oh how I want to visit this place!! Thanks for the guide <3

  2. Wow your article is amazing. So many information. I haven´t been to Machu Picchu yet but would love to go. I am definitely keeping your post in mind as i think its the most extensive article I have read so far. Thank you so much for sharing.

      You’re welcome Claudia I’m happy that you find it very helpful. You should visit MP someday and I hope this article would be of great help to your planning.

  3. This is such an informative guide. I love how you laid the cost of each part, it looks worth the money for sure. I hope to visit Peru one day and you’re guide will be very useful for then.

      Thanks Tasha. I hope you’ll be able to visit some day. It surely is a very wonderful place.

  4. This is such a detailed post! Absolutely amazing 😀 I’ve been wanting to go to MP for ages and have browse tons of post but this one takes the hat. I didn’t realise there are quite that many hiking options! Better plan it out then! Thanks x

  5. Machu Picchu is a truly amazing place. It was definitely one of the top highlights of my trip to South America. You’ve done a great job putting this comprehensive guide together, there is so much useful information! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  6. This is an amazing guide! I’ve always wanted to go to Machu Pichu, but i’m worried about the elevation. How did you manage?

    1. Author

      Thanks Loretta. I actually travelled from north-south. All the other places I’ve been to first were really higher than Machu Picchu. My first few days were spent in Huaraz. I did get altitude sickness while hiking there but I had the coca leaves with me which was really helpful and I brought some medicine also. I was glad it did not last for few days. Cusco is a great place to acclimatize before you head to Machu Picchu. Stay for a couple of days there and don’t forget to drink plenty of water.

  7. This is a great detailed post! I’m hoping to do Machu Picchu in 2019 so this will be so helpful to refer to! I just had some friends return from a trip this year and they loved it! Did you hike the Inca Trail, or one of the different ones?

    1. Author

      No, I didn’t hike any trails. I was actually low in budget and since I wanted to explore Peru from north to south and few days in Bolivia, I had to skip some activities which are quite heavy in the wallet. I hope you’ll enjoy your trip there someday and hope this post will help you a lot.

    1. Author

      Thank you. I hope you’ll be able to fulfill your dreams. It’s really a great place to visit.

      You’re welcome Maike. Glad you find it helpful. Peru is a nice country and so much to explore. I’ve visited Bolivia but just for a few days. I wish it was longer.
