We did this as part of our visit to Machu Picchu. We went up at 10am you must book your tickets a few months in advance the spaces fill up quickly. Was challenging but well worth it. Great views from the top.

Short but steep hike. You can look down at Machu Pichu. Book in advance because the park allows only 400 per day to enter the trail.

Incredible views that you have to work for! My wife and I pre-booked a hike up to Huayna Picchu when we visited Machu Picchu and were so glad that we did. It's a bit steep, which was tough since I'm pretty petrified of heights, but...More

Hiking up Huayna Picchu is somewhat difficult, especially for people who are not used to hiking about 1000 feet up to 8,924 feet. You climb rock stairs, then go down the same way for part of the hike. Only 200 people are allowed to hike...More
