The Train to Machu Picchu is one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world. The train from Cusco to Machu Picchu winds along the Sacred Urubamba River before arriving at the Seventh Wonder of the World, Machu Picchu. The Incan Citadel of Machu Picchu receives 5940 visitors every day. 90% of these tourists arrive via the train to Machu Picchu.
