The Belmond Hiram Bingham Train is considered one of the world’s top ten train routes, and after watching this video, it’s easy to see why. Besides the epic Sacred Valley scenery through the train window, the combination of the multi-course menu, ever-flowing drinks, and live music make for an incredible ride to Machu Picchu.
Though it is not the only way to reach Machu Picchu, Belmond’s train will take you to the Inca citadel famously rediscovered by the locomotive’s namesake, the American explorer Hiram Bingham, in absolute style and comfort.
If it’s not already, this adventure belongs on the bucket list. Live the experience vicariously through the popular YouTube travel channel Vagabrothers.
There are various means of transportation and routes that will lead you from the greater Sacred Valley area to Peru’s iconic archaeological site. Whether you are looking for an intense hike, a smooth ride, or even a combination of the two, there are plenty of options to ensure that your journey to Machu Picchu is memorable for all the right reasons.
