Huayna Picchu, Machu Picchu

4.8
#1 of 7 in Parks in Machu Picchu
Shaped like a pyramid, Huayna Picchu towers over Machu Picchu, the famed lost city of the Incas. The viewpoint, accessible by a steep track and restricted to 400 visitors per day, offers perhaps the most iconic view of one of the world's most popular attractions. Reward yourself for the challenging hike up the hill by taking the photo of your life, with the ancient city in the background. Reserve your place on the track well in advance, as you'll have plenty of competition no matter what time of year you visit. To plan Machu Picchu vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • We also climbed from 10:00 and there was a little climb at the end of the fall, so it was hot at the last minute and I was feeling heat stroke. The view from the top is nice, but after looking at the pictures, I think I have a good sense of accomplishment to climb this mountain. We have helped gloves. At the time of slipping, the injury prevention of the palm, such as the chain. Would be better if there was no more. It is not exaggerated, but the small glove of the 100 yen shop is enough to say.
