Los Jardines de Mandor Reviews
Un treking muy lindo con unas vistas increibles caminando por selva y un clima casi tropical !!!Avistaje de aves y plantas hermosas !!!!Vale la pena llegar hasta aqui . more »A very nice treking with incredible views walking through jungle and an almost tropical climate !!! Sighting beautiful birds and plants !!!! It's worth getting here.
Wenn man Zeit hat, lohnt sich ein kleiner Spaziergang bei den Jardines, es muss aber nicht sein, liegt aber auf Weg nach Machu Picchu. more »If you have time, a short walk at the Jardines is worthwhile, but it doesn't have to be, but it's on its way to Machu Picchu.
This is a beautiful walk along the railway lines from Aguas Calientes. The waterfall is amazing. It is peaceful and absolutely beautiful with a display of all the indigenous plants along the walk towards the waterfall. There is a small coffee shop just before you enter the reserve.
This was a great walk from Aguas Calientes along the railroad track. I love walking along tracks in the rainforest, there is just something about it. Walking by the towering cliff faces and looking out into the tops of trees to watch the small songbirds and hummingbirds. Got to photograph quite a few birds, and saw some interesting mushrooms.
