The railroad to Aguas Calientes

Aguas Calientes is a small town that serves as base camp to the climb to the Machu Pichu. It can only be reached by train. The 3 hours ride, Orient Express style, through Sacred Valley is stunning and a feeling of “end of the world” overwhelmed me as we entered the Aguas Calientes train station. Still, life in Aguas Calientes looks to be like any other place in the world. (click on pictures for high res)
