Huayna Picchu Mountain?

Once arriving at Machu Picchu, it’s impossible not to notice the presence of this mountain towering above Machu Picchu. This mountain is called Huayna Picchu, which means young mountain in Quechua, and offers one the best places to observe the ancient city of Machu Picchu its entirety, as well as the surrounding valley. 

How difficult is to reach the top of Huayna Picchu?

To arrive to the summit of Huayna Picchu, you will have to climb a very narrow, steep trail with a lot of steps, floating stairways, and even pass a short tunnel. 

How long takes to reach the top of Huayna Picchu Mountain?

The climb takes around 45 minutes and is a challenge in itself, especially after a four-day hike along the Inca Trail, but the reward for the work is unbeatable.

What you can see in Huayna Picchu Mountain?

Arriving to the top, you will see a different perspective of the ancient Inca city and be able to see deep into the surrounding valley cut into the mountain by the Urubamba River.  Huayna Picchu Mountain is home to some interesting sites like the temple of the moon, Inca dwellings, and agricultural and decorative terraces.  There are plenty of nice spots to sit down and enjoy the view of the ruins below.

How to get the Huayna Picchu Ticket

Entrance to Huayna Picchu is limited to 400 people daily, separated into two entrance times of 200 people each.  The first entrance time is 7:00am and the second is 11:00am.  In order to climb Huayna Picchu, it is necessary to reserve permits ahead of time, at the time of reservation of the Inca Trail or alternative trek to Machu Picchu (Salkantay, Choquequirao).  Note: if you reserve the first entrance time to Huayna Picchu, you will miss your guided tour of Machu Picchu.
