Take in the extensive views of Machu Picchu from Intipuncu, one of the city's most important archeological sites. Dedicated to Inti, the Incan sun god, the gateway once served as a part of the fortress that overlooked the roads leading to the city. Today, its vantage point offers some of the best views of all of Machu Picchu and the surrounding mountain peaks. Despite the inclining terrain, the relatively short 1.6 km (1 mi) hike over the stone-paved road from Machu Picchu to the gateway is not too difficult. The trail offers excellent views along its entire length, so even if you don't ascend the entire way, the hike remains worthwhile. Wear sturdy hiking shoes, bring your camera and plenty of water, and note that the path can be slippery when wet.

마추픽추 구경하고 내려오려고 하는데 버스 탑승하기 위한 줄이 너무 길었어요. 그래서 그냥 걸어서 내려왔습니다. 원래 걸어서 하산할 수 있는 등산로가 있는데 그걸 몰라서 찻길로 내려왔습니다. 버스가 지나갈때마다 혹시 세워주진 않을까 했는데 그냥 가더라구요. more »I was trying to get down to Machu Picchu, but the line for the bus was too long. So I just walked down. The hotel is located in the middle of the city. Every time the bus passed by, i thought it would be a good idea to go.
見張り小屋からマチュピチュ遺跡とは反対側の道をひたすら1時間ほど上っていくとあります。往復二時間はかかってしまうので、帰ってきてからマチュピチュ遺跡をまわると、かなり体力消耗するので、時間がある方、もしくは数日マチュピチュに来る方にはおすすめです。 more »From the watchhut, you can go up the road opposite machu Picchu ruins for about an hour. It takes two hours to go back and forth, so if you go around the Machu Picchu ruins after you come back, it will be quite exhausting, so it is recommended for those who have time or come to Machu Picchu for a few days.
