The original tour we had booked with kumuka had us doing the 3 day trek along the inca trail however with our reshuffle we were now only doing a day trip up to Machu Picchu by train. We rose early to meet our mini bus driver and tour guide for an hour and a half drive from Cusco to Ollantaytambo where we would grab lay minute supplies and board the train to Aguas Calientes the closest town to Machu Picchu. The train trip took around 90 minutes and provided some breathtaking scenery and we made our way through green valleys, past running rivers and streams an took in views of snow capped mountains around us. Batman had a prime position to snap up photos as we made our way through the valley so there will be some good photos to follow once back in aus
Although this was a short blog, this has got to be one of the top highlights of my trip so far. I have hundreds of photos to share when I get back to aus :) another bucket list item taken care of and it was everything I hoped and more.
