Shortest time for Machu Picchu in good light?

Jump to last reply

Call me a Philistine, that's ok. Just please respond to the question if you are able.

In looking at a first and maybe only trip to Peru for Aug, I want to maximize time in the jungle and Amazon Basin, but feel I should not leave without seeing the world renowned Machu Picchu. I don't need to linger or to investigate all the surroundings.

With unlimited time and money, I'd hang out at this historic site a couple of weeks. But the limits on each and my real interest in spending time in more wild environs, mean I need to know how you'd structure a very quick trip to Machu Picchu.

I saw the lightning quick trip report to Machu Picchu by Boston Harbor but that was 6 days.

Or--perish the thought and beat me bloody with a Zampoña--have you heard of anyone going to Peru without including Machu Picchu?
