Water at Machu Picchu

We have two days at the ruins. One to see MP and one to climb HP. Do we need to bring our own bottles of water or do they sell it near the gate. I know from hiking elsewhere we have to have water. I also know it is not actually permitted. Is there any where near the train station or any place else where we can buy it. So excited, our trip is in two weeks.

Thanks for the help.

There are hundreds of places in agua calientes you can buy it. You can also buy it at the snack bar just before entering mp but it costs more there. Your hotel may also provide filtered water. It's easy to get and you can bring it in.

Once you enter MP you will not find any water being sold or dispensed. Bring your own in small bottles and bring out the empty ones.

Use the restrooms before entering as well. One of the blessings about Machu Picchu is that there are no shops or signs of amenities or typical conveniences inside the ruins. It's only ruins.
