After spending a day touring Cusco, Peru and organizing my trip to Machu Pichu (which took some time), it was Machu Picchu Day! I left my home at 7 am and rode to Poroy Station where I would embark on my journey to Machu Picchu with Belmond Hiram Bingham train and tour. The ride was mostly through small towns and was a lot of fun, even though I had some weather on the journey.
After spending a rough night in Abancay, Peru I had a nice slow ride into Cusco, Peru which is where I would base myself for a few days for my trips to Machu Pichu and the Sacred Valley. It would take me over 4 hours to get to Cusco, Peru taking in around 128 miles (192 kilometers) mostly on the paved roads and hugging the Andes.
