Stranded in Aguas Calientes! My Crazy Journey Out of This Machu Picchu Town

  1. Robin Metcalf says:

    WOW!!! What an experience!! So thankful you and your group made it through this horrifying ordeal!

  2. […] After that encounter, I found Aji Verde sauce in multiple restaurants during my time in Peru. It literally came with everything, from a scrumptious taco platter in Cusco to a delicious vegetable bowl in Aguas Calientes. […]

    Oh my goodness this is crazy. I’m glad you finally made it out is there okay but what an ordeal!

  4. What a scary experience you had in Aguas Calientes, to be there when teh Alcamayo burst its banks! It must have been a shock to see such destruction, and realise that you could no longer take the railroad back out of town! And what a relief to have a great guide who could help you to hike out along the riverbank to the nearest town with a road, from where you could get transport!

    Oh. My. GOD! I would STILL be a freaked out mess if this happened to me! I’m so glad you survived. This could have ended so much worse!

    That sure sounds like quite the adventure. It just goes to show that things can happen when we’re travelling and be sometimes have to get creative and just “go with the flow”. I sure hope they were able to get the railway fixe pretty quickly so as not to lose too much tourism.
