Trip Planner: South America / Peru / Cusco Region / Sacred Valley / Machu Picchu / Aguas Calientes / Phutuq K'usi
Scale Phutuq K'usi to traverse a recently discovered Incan trail and view the far side of Machu Picchu. The trail starts with a wire climb up the side of the mountain. As you continue on, ladders are available for climbing, though some areas still require the use of upper body strength to go further. These aspects make the trail difficult for anyone not in good physical shape, but if you are determined and able enough, you can reach the summit. Those who have climbed it before suggest bringing grip gloves and good hiking shoes. Put Phutuq K'usi at the forefront of your travel plans using our Machu Picchu trip maker tool .

Phutuq K'usi Reviews
Тяжелое путешествие. Стоит несколько раз подумать, прежде чем отправляться в него . Конечно, потрясающие место, но добраться крайне сложно. more »Heavy travel. It is worth to think several times before you go into it. Of course, awesome place, but it is very difficult to reach.
demore 90 minutos y empezó a llover, me asuste por lo peligroso, pero gracias a dios baje sin problema alguno more »take 90 minutes and it started to rain, scared me by the dangerous, but thankfully lower without any problems
This trek is very nice. We were the only one who were trekking there. Unfortunately there is no ladder anymore for what reason we had to stop at the rock wall. But the walk until this was beautiful. You can snap some really nice shots there!
Hard to climb, but it is worthy due to the amazing view of Machu Pichu and Huayna Pichu.
