Visiting the citadel of Machupicchu by train is a fascinating and unique experience with incredible views, fields, green valleys and impressive glaciers that are part of the entrance to a subtropical climate where you can appreciate the exuberant flora and fauna of this magical place. Machu Picchu known today as one of the “7 wonders of the Modern World” makes this place increasingly dazzling with thousands of tourists arriving daily.
