Where do you stay the night you reach Machu Picchu?

Postby laurynt99 » Tue May 24, 2011 5:38 pm

Hi everyone,
Just wondering what happens after you reach machu picchu? do you camp out another night? do you catch a train back to Cuzco?

Thanks!

Which trip?
I did absolute Peru and we got (hiked) to MP at 5am ish and spent several hours there, then went down to Ag calientes for a several hours or so - went to hot springs, beer bar, shopping, post cards etc and then caught the afternoon train back to Cusco.

Where you go likely depends on your itinerary, but you don't camp the night following your day at Machu Picchu. I did peru on a shoestring and we went back to Cuzco that night.

Since you did not note which trip you are on, the most definitive source would be to look at the "Trip Details" available on the GAP website that lists your trip. This covers many of the details that are very helpful for planning any GAP trip - e.g. detailed daily itinerary, packing list, gratuity guidelines, meeting hotel info, etc. etc.

I did Inca Discovery a few years ago, looks like the itinerary is the same. We spent the day around Machu Picchu and Aguas Calientes, and then were back in Cuzco around 8-9PM.
Enjoy! It was awesome!
