Travel tips for Machu Picchu

The city of Aguas Calientes is a tourist place very crowded (more than 1500 people visit it every day) and that's why it has grown in a disordered and exponential way. The cost of the products they offer there is very high, because it's the only place nearby where you can them. We recommend to spend one night there, to start the ascent of Machu Picchu early in the morning, as soon as possible.You should be prepared for the altitude sickness. And do not take a lot of things, since you will walk a lot and you will have to carry all your staff.
