It's really beautiful view, along the way you find various stories of sacrifices and rituals. A very nice place where you have a beautiful view of the entire site.

Melinda and the hotel staff took great care of us during our stay.

The hotel is just steps from reataurants, the train station and the bus to Machu Pichu. I was concerned about train noise, but it was never an issue. The noise proof windows worked great. The free breakfast was plentiful and delicious.

They allowed us to keep one of our rooms after check out time so we had a place to rest until it was time for our train. We had a great experience at Inti Punku Hotel and will definitely stay again on our next visit to Machu Pichu!

Karen was so helpful and nice. She made our stay at the hotel so wonderful! The hotel was very nice and comfortable. The breakfast was ready before our hike at 5am and was delicious.

The path up can be slippy if it rains but otherwise easy enough.
Waited for around an hour for clouds to clear & they did for about 2mins, so be ready.

Beautiful place to admire Machupicchu. Excellent view of Machu Picchu. Intipunku or SunGate. It is the point where the Inca Trail ends, and it is the entrance to the Inca citadel in the fifteenth century. You can go with the same ticket as Machu Picchu (without additional fee) and keep in mind that it is a moderate walk that should take 2 hours round trip.

This is one of the splendid views you get on your tour of Machu Picchu, the very steep Andes Mountains and the low valleys. Even on a cloudy day, the perspective is impressive.

Because Machu Picchu visit is organised like an Ikea store, meaning you start at level 1 and finish at ground level and it's all one way. Except that at Ikea you can start again or come back mid-way. Here at Machu Picchu, once you start there is no turning back, there are guards making sure you don't go back, and once you're done, you cannot go back to do the hikes likes Intipuncu, which is why it's important to do it first thing.
If you do it early (before 9am), it's a bit hazy so take your polarised filter for decent photos.
The hike is quick, maybe 1h30 total. It's not hard

Said to provide some of the best views of Machu Picchu the Sun Gate was probably used as a control post for people entering and leaving the city.

This was a heck of a hike up about 60 minutes each way with a 7 year old. We were blessed with nice weather and it was a good day to take this route. The rest of the main citadel was packed with tourists so this was a less busy route to enjoy different views of Machu Picchu.

Such a wonderful opportunity to visit this great site. One of the best views in the entire site. It is worth the trek but on a second visit or when you have extra time. Otherwise go to the peak at Circuit 1.
