It can be nice to get to the ruins as soon as they open at 6 am to appreciate the sunrise over the archaeological complex as the sun rises, after a 25-minute bus ride to Machu Picchu.

Machu Picchu Mountain is also another hike, instead of Huayna Picchu Mountain. This hike is more difficult and takes three hours minimum, round trip (with an additional cost of USD $75 per person).

For your return from Machu Picchu, we recommend that you return to Aguas Calientes no later than 2 hours before so that you can enjoy lunch in one of the many restaurants.
