“Take a walk to Mandor Falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

This is a hidden gem. You have to follow the railroad tracks to find the entrance to Mandor Gardens. We had a great time walking the gardens to Mandor Falls. Beautiful! There are bathrooms at the entrance building where you sign in.

“A nice walk to Mandor Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2014

After climbing hundreds if not thousands of steps at Mach Pichu the previous day this walk along the train line was a pleasant experience. For some strange reason the walk with the group took one hour and thirty minutes and when I walked back on my own it took forty minutes. I was however walking at a much quicker pace.
The gardens are worth the 10 soles entrance fee. There are lovely butterflies and birds to be seen and the walk to the waterfall and indeed the waterfall is beautiful.
A very relaxing morning.

“gardens and waterfall are worth the walk to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2014

Beautiful and well kept place! The main waterfall in the area is beautiful! The staff is friendly and willing to explain things. The walk there is longer than what they tell you but is worth it!

“What a find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2014

We started walking from Hidroelectrica at 6 pm, it was dark but a pleasant walk under the stars.
Aftert an 1 1/2 of brisk walk we found lights by the train tracks and asked if we could sleep there for the night.
Simple rooms and hot water was enough to settle there for few hours , since we started to walk at 4 am to get up to Machu Pichu early.
After the walk we walked back and went to enjoy the zen garden , the waterfall and chill out before we started to head again to Cusco.
I would loved to stay there few days,the stuff (is a family run guest house) are very helpful and kind.
Highly recommend this place......

“A good walk, but longer than expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2014

If you just came down the Machu Picchu (4-day inca trail), you may want to reconsider taking this mini trek. Also, beware of the season. We went during dry season, and the waterfall was like a tiny stream of water falling down a tiny hill. Was not very impressive, given the 3-hour walk (there and back. It's a great little garden if you've got time on your hands and are not too tired from walking.
