Good news for everyone who has Machu Picchu on their “bucket list:” the ruins are going to reopen on March 29. The train will once again run between Aguas Calientes (the town at the bottom of the hill from the ruins) to Piscacucho. Buses will go from Cuzco and Ollantaytambo to Piscacucho. The train track between Piscacucho and Cuzco was apparently damaged by mudslides more than the last section which leads to the ruins. This section is expected to reopen sometime in June or July, restoring the famous train trip from Cuzco to the ruins. The section of the Inca Trail in the area – by far the most-traveled part of the famous Inca roadway – will reopen at about the same time.
