Puno to Cuzco

by Emily Benjamin

All aboard the Inka Express! Although, it’s not actually express. You can get a real express bus between Puno and Cuzco and it will take you about 6 hours. Our bus took 10 hours – but with fantastic stops along the way, and a yum buffet lunch. We set off from Puno at 7.30am and stopped first at Pukara, for a museum of Inca carvings and relicts. Second stop, La Raya, to see the highest point so far at 4300m above sea level. A quick lunch before setting off for the next two stops – Raqchi and Andahuaylillas. Raqchi is the remains of an old Inca village, set between the mountains. Andahuaylillas is famous for it’s church, which although it is undergoing repair and renovation, was still lovely. And with those four great stops, it was back on board and into Cuzco, for our last days of rest before our Machu Picchu trek!
