If you have a spare day in Aguas Calientes, and want an easy excursion after the rigours of Machu Picchu, then take an easy hour and a half stroll along the side of the railway line to Mandor Gardens. The gardens are in a side valley with gentle waterfalls. There are lots of buttterflies and birds, maybe orchids at the right time of year, but don't believe the brochure boast of spectacled bears. The cafe by the railway, overlooking the river, has excellent sandwiches. The whole round trip from A.C. took us about 5 hours with lunch and lots of photo stops.
