Ok all you cycling buddies,
Who’s got the low-down for Machu Pichu and getting there? We want to know the different options and how other people have done it. We are keen to do it as cheaply as possible without totally destroying our enjoyment of visiting this epic tourist destination.
We probably won’t hike the Inca Trail but are interested in the bus/train/walking options etc.
Cheers in advance, Belinda, Roland, Seth and Parker.
