According to our hotel manager, she advised us to leave the hotel for the bus station (going up to the Machu Pichuu) at 4:30am. We bought our bus ticket 24US return the night before(taking you from the town to the visitor centre up the hill- if you prefer to walk, it will take an hour: leaving you not much energy to explore Machu picchu). The bus started at 5:30am, but a long line-up was there by 4:45am. However, many buses were there to shuttle people. We were at the Machu Picchuu at 0600-0605. It was hazy and cloudy...a little bit drizzling....need a jacket. Until 8:30am, the sky was clearing up; the breathing taking mountain ranges and the stony structures of the ruins stood out. Pairing up with the terrains, rivers, and bridges, I felt like in a fairy land. A deer was spotted in the ruin. The highest point of the Santuario gave a bird eye view of the town.
