Mandor Gardens is a beautiful garden (jungle style) down the tracks from Aguas Caliente about an hour hike. I have been in this area more than a dozen times and each time there is something new going on. The waterfall at the end of the hike is beautiful and worth spending some time there just meditating. There is a small... More

We were looking for something to do in Aguas Calientes other than the hot springs. Someone recommended these botanical gardens to us. It is a nice, refreshing walk to get there and the waterfall is beautiful. It felt a little bit like the rain forest. It was very nice and I recommend it to anyone who is spending time in... More

Waterfalls aren't particularly spectacular and it's quite a walk from Aguascalientes. If your just looking to get out of town and do some walking, it might be worth your while. It does have areas for picnics and swimming.

We walked along the train tracks from Aguas Calientes. Little mysterious because they ask for passport information upon entry. Very pretty place with a lot of flora and fauna (rainforesty feel). 10 soles per person entry fee. It is for the adventure-seeker and not for the relaxing tourist.

Beautiful gardens here. We had a lovely hike to the nearby waterfall. Felt like a tropical paradise within the cloud forest. The walk was pretty easy for all fitness levels with lots of opportunities for some beautiful pictures.

Not for those with a mobility problem perhaps but if ya can go the peaceful route as it is well worth while. Pray for dry weather but also cool breeze as this can be both tiring and hot,stand still for a moment and feel the sound of the river and history...probably never be here again.

Amazing place to visit and all the walking is totally worth it. You can avoid the train tunels by taking a shortcut right down the train rails.
