Mandor Waterfalls is a beautiful travel destination, a must on any nature enthusiast list! My family and I visited the falls in 2007 while visiting family in Peru, and almost 7 years later, I still remember the waterfall, and my hike to it with fondness! My family and I hiked from Aguas Calients along the train tracks to the waterfall,... More

I loved this place. Just because of it secludidness. You are walking in the jungle, breathing in the fresh air and nobody is in sight. It can take quite a bit of time to get there and back, but it is worth it.

When my wife and I arrived Aquas Calientes on December 18th, we checked in to our hotel and our guide took us to Mandor Gardens. We had not asked for this as we did not even know about it. I enjoyed this trip almost as much as Machu Picchu! From Aquas Calientes the hike is around five miles roundtrip if... More

It takes more than an hour to walk from the town of Agua Caliente to the Mandor Gardens and waterfall. If you are spending one or two extra days in Agua Caliente after your Machu Picchu visit, this is a place you should visit. The walk alongside the railway into the mountains is beautiful. The garden itself is small and... More

We really enjoyed the walk to Catarata Mandor but it really takes about an hour and a half each way. Lots to see along the way down the tracks and along the river. The Mandor gardens and waterfall are not spectacular but rather pleasant. If you have time to kill in Aguas Calientes, this would be a great thing to... More

We walk near 4 kilometers on a very narrow path, full of rocks, it was exhausting, but when we were there, the natural attraction wasn't so spectacular. The waterfall is petite, very normal.

If you like orchids... Or if you just want to see MP from a different perspective with a little local knowledge and... More

Went there the day after the tiring climb of Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu mountain. The garden itself can not really be considered an attraction - there are some labelled plants, trees, vegetables etc., you walk along a small stream and you come, at the end, to a mini-waterfall. Some butterflies, might see Coatis early morning/late evening according to owners.... More

An easy walk along the river and railroad tracks, Mandor Gardens and Falls are well worth the trek. Many of the plants along the trail are labeled and the trail is flanked by lush vegetation and many flowers, even at the end of their winter season. The walk is about 3 miles from the Hotel Taypikala so allow enough time... More
