How do you get from Cusco to Machu Picchu?

For Peru Rail and Inca Rail, trains depart from Poroy station (a 20-minute trip from Cusco) or from Ollantaytambo station, located in the Sacred Valley. The trains arrive at Machu Picchu Pueblo (also known as Aguas Calientes). Alternatively, there are tourist busses to Hidro Eletrica from where it is a two hours hike along the railway tracks to Aguas Calientes.
