Bus to Machu Picchu
After arriving in Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu Station) you have two options available for the ascent to the citadel of Machu Picchu: on foot or by bus.
For those who prefer to go on foot, the six-kilometer walk will take you no more than an hour.
You can also take one of the 20 buses that travel the winding road, departing from town every 15 minutes. The first bus leaves at 5:30 am, and the last one leaves the citadel for town at 5:30 pm.
The bus ticket costs approximately USD 24 (round trip) and may be purchased at the ticket offices in Aguas Calientes: Av. Hermanos Ayar S/N, or at the CONSETTUR offices located at Av. Infancia 433, Wanchaq, Cusco.
