About the Book
If you are going to Machu Picchu, planning a trip, or just thinking about it, this short book, with blank pages for your own notes, is exactly what you need. Based on two trips to Machu Picchu and several others to Peru plus extensive research, Dr. Montgomery puts in your hand--or on your tablet--a self-directed guide to Machu Picchu. Even if you expect to have a tour guide, this book will prepare you for the visit and enrich your experience once you are in "the lost city of the Incas." Also included is information about traveling by train to Aguas Calientes, the village at the base of the mountain on which Machu Picchu sits and hiking the Inca trail--the only other way to get there. Useful information about Aguas Calientes, including lodging, shopping, and points of interest complete this short, notebook sized guide.
