La Paz to Punu then Machu Picchu

Jump to last reply

Im going to be in La Paz, Bolivia in May and want to go to Machu Picchu. My first idea was to fly from La Paz to Lima (night stop) then Cusco. I don't really need to go to Lima. Then when I was checking trains from Cusco to Machu Picchu I spotted an intresting journey from Puno on Lake Titicata direct to Cusco. This would avoid Lima and the night stop.

A couple of questions:

1) Are these trains realiable. I'm travelling in May.

2) How can I get from La Paz to Puno. Lake Titicaca was on my list of places to visit anyway so part of that journey was all ready on the itinery.
