This garden is about a 3 km walk on way out of Machu Picchu town. It's a nice garden with a waterfall, some forest and an interesting collection of rocks. But it is just a garden of minimal interesting and a nice walk. If you don't make it, it won't be the end of the world.

Erika from our hotel, Casa del Sol, told us about this 3 hour round trip hike to a beautiful waterfall so we decided we had to go. It was so worth it. We walked along the train tracks following the river towards St. Theresa. Look up from the tracks once in a while and you can see the terraces of... More

Great waterfall - beautiful setting - not too challenging of a hike which is nice after some longer ones during the week. We initially walked about 2 miles PAST the Mandor Gardens site as it looked locked - a lock wrapped around the entrance - and assumed it must be further down. We eventually turned around when we realized we... More

Beautiful gardens and wonderful pay off to see the waterfall. Lots of running water along the way. Well kept paths. Helpful signage. Definitely recommended!

Relatively easy hike, mostly alongside the Urubamba river below Machu Picchu. Birds, flora, butterflies, etc. are extraordinary. Ends with a fabulous view of the waterfall and cascades. Strongly suggest that you indulge in a guide who can help identify the various forms of wildlife and plants -- my guide made the hike immensely more interesting.

My husband and I visited the gardens the afternoon we climbed Machupicchu. It was truly beautiful. If you have a free afternoon and about 4-5 hours, take this easy hike. You won't regret it. To us, it felt like walking on a rain forest. The place is isolated and empty enough to have a quite walk. No climbing involved, so... More

Mandor falls was the most beautiful place. With a track that meanders up through the trees, with little wood log steps, amazing plants and a small water offering rock on the way this adventure takes you to the main falls that are just breathtaking. The rush of the water and the purity of the space was beautiful

We absolutely loved this hike! After completing the 4-day Inca trek, we weren't up for anything strenuous, but the walk to the waterfall in Mandor was absolutely perfect. It's a little out of the way, but that just means fewer tourists around! The jungle plants and animals are beautiful, and the waterfall was very impressive. Just a note: we tried... More

We walked from our hotel in town to the Falls in about 50 minutes and then another 25 minutes up to the falls. The hike up the trail wasn't difficult and had many cute little stops to rest. There was a restaurant at the start of the trail with light snacks and lunch type food. There was a small entrance... More
