A journey on the Belmond Hiram Bingham starts or finishes in Poroy, 20 minutes from the ancient capital city of Cusco.
In Cusco’s main square you’ll find an array of colourful stalls framed by curious, charming stone walkways and streets. Delve a little deeper and discover beautiful little arcades with boutiques selling local crafts.
On the journey to the lost city, the train runs through Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
The beautiful valley, known as 'Vilcamayo' to the Incas, stretches out from the Inca citadels of Pisac to Ollantaytambo along the Urubamba River or 'Sacred River'.
Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, is one of the most famous examples of Inca architecture.
The ruins, located in a lush jungle, are believed to have been built in the mid-15th century. Lost in history, they were not discovered until 1911 by the American explorer, Hiram Bingham.
