traveling to machu pichu from lima

Hi everyone, I am planning a crazy trip to peru and want to know how it is if I arrive in lima and plan to be in aguas calientes the next day. i have no time to lose, and cant "acclimate" to the thin air quality before going to machu pichu. is this crazy or doable? Does anyone know? ALso, does anyone have any idea about activity in these towns (Cuzco, Aguas Calientes) during Easter? I don't want to be stuck there because everything is shut down. I plan to leave the MOnday after Easter!

Yes, It can be done but you better book yr train tickets now.

Many people travel to MP during Easter Holidays.
