I found this beautiful infographic (from Angie Ruiz, not sure what her website is), if you want to read more about traveling to this exciting place, just click for more information > Machu Picchu articles.
Such a wonderful place. I remember visiting when I was 8 or 9 years old. It was incredible to see all the stone structures up high in the mountain. I remember taking one of those trains from Cusco and took us 3 or 4 hours to get to the Sacred City.
There are a lot of articles about the Inca Trail, a wonderful hike to Machu Picchu and also information about the train, and the best times to travel to Machu Picchu. Enjoy.
