Create an itinerary including Huayna 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.

  • Get your Machu Picchu tickets 5 to 6 months in advance to hike Huayna Picchu or they will be sold out. Purchase Circuit 4 + Wayna Picchu. This circuit is somewhat challenging, but almost anyone can do it, even if overweight, as long as you take your time and have no medical issues. My wife and I completed the Mountain in 5 hours. Thats with taking in the views at the top. Don't let the "stairs of death" moniker scare you away, just do it. You will not regret it.
  • Side by side with Machu Picchu. You can read my review about it here on Google maps too. The other magical sister of Machu 💚 You can enjoy it on the same trip! Must of people doesn't pay attention to this beautiful mountain because of Machu Picchu, but I totally recommende it! And you are an adventure type I also recommend the Inka trail 🥰 But trust the guides! As I said in my Machu Picchu review here, this experience is one of a kind and you have to live it! Enjoy it!
