If you have two to three hours, this is a nice 20 to 30 minute walk along the railroad tracks. We saw lots of birds along the tracks including the Peruvian Cock of the Rock, a Moto, and lot of others. The gardens charge a small fee, they will unlock the gate for you. The waterfalls are nice, but really... More

Mandor Gardens, Los Jardines de Mandor, is a pleasant walk from central Aguas Calientes, along the train track. There are two waterfalls, and a trail through lush tropical vegetation. Across the tracks, the gardens ticket office is part of a small lodge, where overnight guests can find comfortable beds, good meals, and very accommodating hosts. The small entrance fee collected...

Very scenic walk outside of Aguas Calientes. It takes about an hour along the train tracks and then 20 minutes to the small waterfall. Many different species of plants. Halfway back we were a bit tired of walking in the rocks, but it was very pleasant otherwise.

It is a good option to do for an open afternoon in Machupicchu Pueblo, it takes you into a small jungle, the waterfall is not the greatest, but the trip itself it's worth the walk.

Because we were stuck in Aguas Calientes due to the hospitality strike, we found ourselves with an extra day and looking for something to do. From our hotel, it was an easy, 90-minute hike each way to the waterfall. The trek was truly lovely from walking on the train tracks to the final hike up to the waterfall. It really... More

Interesting as you take a path next to the tracks. Many locals from villages further out were tracking into town this way. It is a bit longer than we realized to get to the waterfall..was worth it. Many animals and butterflies were seen!

Well worth the walk. We thought we were lost for a minute just walking by the railroad tracks for close to an hour. Glad we didn't miss the falls. tons of butterfly's in the garden leading to the falls. Very awesome. Water was a bit to cold for swimming

We enjoyed an hour long walk to visit the gardens and waterfall. You could see the ruins of Machu Pichu from the walk.

They are OK, if you have time to kill, but certainly no a reason to stay a 2nd night in Aguas calientes.
