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.

Huayna Picchu Reviews
Going up to Huayna Picchu is somewhat tired but the effort is worth a lot. To reach the top is to charge all the positive energies and return as new. more »
It's a long way up with many stairs, but worth it in the end! Be sure to go during your allotted time. There are only 2 sets of 200 people allowed. Nice place to have a little picnic at the top too. more »
It's a difficult hike but the view from the top is beautiful. If you enjoy hiking, definitely recommend that you do this while visiting Machu Picchu.
Amazing views. Especially for the Instagram people.
