We came here because we had time to spare. I don’t regret it since I like to enjoy and explore the places I go. But this is one of a lifetime thing for me to do! I will not come back or recommend it to any one if you don’t have time. You pay 10 soles (around $3) per person... More

We were stranded in Aguas Calientes due to a town-wide strike that stopped the trains and closed all the restaurants and shops. We literally had nothing to do one day, so we walled to Mandor Gardens. The gardens are pretty, but not spectacular. The highlight, if you can call it that, is the waterfall at the end of the path.... More

I saw Mandor Gardens on my way to Aguas Calientes (hot springs) from Cuzco, since I did the Salkantay trail.

The walk to the gardens is along train tracks that pass through a couple of narrow mountain tunnels which have no pedestrian path. Signs posted outside ask people to stay clear or risk getting run over. However, visitors routinely ignore the warning and so did I. I passed through the first tunnel without incident. When I was halfway through the... More

This is a lovely park and waterfall off the beaten path. We easily hiked there on relatively flat terrain the afternoon we arrived in Aguascalientes.

This is a great place to start your day, after a long previous day at Machu Picchu. It is 1 km long and ends in a beautiful waterfall.bonus info it is free if you stay in Gea Lodge.

Follow the Macchu Piccu bus route out of town. Bear right a few hundred yards before you reach the suspension bridge. That takes you up onto the train tracks. Pleasant walk along thectracks, mostly hardpack, some gravel. Mandor Gardens has a little hotel where you can buy a soda or a beer. The hike up to the waterfall is well... More

Just follow the train tracks toward Machu. Great varieties of Orchids and other flora. If you like taking pictures, plan on 4 hours round trip. Nice waterfall, but don't expect Victoria Falls.
