Alternative road to Machu Picchu

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can take the locals’ road to Machu Picchu. It involves a couple of hours on a local bus through the jungle, a taxi to a hydroelectric power plant, and several kilometers walking on train tracks. During this trip, you visit Santa María and Santa Teresa villages, and besides saving a few bucks, you also get a really nice view of the river, the mountains and the jungle.
