PeruRail informs its passengers that the concessionaire in charge of the administration and maintenance of the railway determines the closure of the route between km 44 and km 61 that leads to Machu Picchu departing from Poroy (Cusco), therefore all train services on the route must operate on alternate roads. For that reason, in compliance with a regulatory measure, between January 2nd and April 30th, 2019, we will implement a Bimodal Service that combines bus and train journeys. During this period, passengers travelling through our train services Cusco – Machu Picchu – Cusco must board a private bus departing from Wanchaq train station, located 5 minutes far from the historic center of Cusco, in direction to Ollantaytambo train station (Sacred Valley). In this point, passengers will transfer to the train of their choice to Machu Picchu. The inbound journey will be carried out in reverse direction. For passengers traveling in our Belmond Hiram Bingham luxury service, the transfer point will be at Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado located in the Sacred Valley and the inbound journey will include the transfer to passengers´ hotels located in Cusco’s city center.

You have chosen to travel on the
Regular service ?
May - December

The Regular Service is the transport service provided by PeruRail on the Cusco – Machu Picchu – Cusco route solely by between May and December. As a general rule, the following standards apply, although details may vary depending on the time of year that you are travelling, for example between January and April the train services may vary during the rainy season in Cusco, when part of the railway is closed for safety reasons to avoid possible contingencies as a result of landslides and PeruRail runs the Bimodal Service (Bus + Train) for the Belmond Hiram Bingham service.
