My husband and I will be travelling through Peru in November 2006, and also want to do the short Inca Trail Cusco <-> Machu Picchu.
According to my original plan, we would have a flight onwards in the morning after returning by train from Aquas Calientes. I've heared a few times that train from Aquas Calientes back to Cuzco are often delayed due to landslides, leaving the tourists stranded for some time. My question now is: can anyone tell me how high the risk of train delays due to landslides is, i.e. is it unwise to have a flight the very next day after the trip?
Many thanks in advance!!
