2,000 Tourists Stranded on Machu Picchu
Daily Mail | Heavy rains and mudslides in Peru have blocked the train route to the ancient Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, stranding some 2,000 tourists.
Perurail spokeswoman Soledad Caparo says the train operator suspended service on Monday and is working to clear rock and mud covering the tracks.
Rail is the only means of transportation on the last leg of the trip to Machu Picchu from the city of Cuzco.
