        My wife and I are planning a trip to Machu Picchu this year from Houston, Texas. I believe there are flights into Lima or Cusco. We are worried about altitude sickness and would like to asked you if there are bus or train service from these two cities to Yellow River? We are thinking going from Lima to Agua Caliente to Machu Picchu and finally to Cusco. I read that the dry season begins in June and most likely the busiest time to go. From all the great comments I read we would like to spend 3 to 4 days at Yellow River.
