A bus service will be provided from Pisacucho to Cuzco until the line is reopened in July, weather permitting. PeruRail will resume its train service for backpackers at the end of April and its Hiram Bingham luxury service at the end of June.
Heavy rain in the Machu Picchu region at the end of January caused severe flooding resulting in landslides which badly damaged the railway between Cuzco and Machu Picchu. The railway is the only transport link to the Inca Citadel.
