The Cusco Regional Government determined last week that PeruRail and IncaRail may not run privately contracted bus service from Ollantaytambo to Piscacucho to deliver Machu Picchu-bound passengers to the KM 82 train stop.
Peru’s National Institute of Culture (INC) said Monday it will ration the number of entrance tickets to Peru’s most popular tourist destination to prevent the site from being swamped by visitors after it reopens on April 1, the Peruvian Times reported.
The long-anticipated resumption of train service to Machu Picchu is set to start today— three days ahead of the official reopening of the Inca citadel after torrential rains in late January transformed the Vilcanota River into a raging torrent that ripped apart much of the rail line.
