The Mandor Gardens and Waterfalls - Other Activity Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu Town) - Peru

If you have a spare morning or afternoon in Aguas Calientes, a visit to the Mandor gardens and waterfalls is an enjoyable way to spend it. Walk for about an hour or so down the railway tracks in the direction of the hydroelectric plant-admiring the views of the river and mountains along the way-and you will come to a little house where you pay a $3.75 fee (10 soles) to enter the gardens. From there, its a 40 minute walk among exotic flora and fauna-including butterflies and rare birds-to the waterfalls. Plan to be gone for around three to four hours; take water and snacks.
