About Huayna Picchu

Huayna Picchu, the eternal guardian of the Inca citadel, is the highest peak that can be seen in typical photographs of Machu Picchu, and scaling its summit is a truly unforgettable experience. The strenuous ascent takes approximately two hours, and begins at the Main Plaza of Machu Picchu, along a trail built by the Incas themselves, currently well-marked and in excellent condition.

If you would like to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime experience, we recommend getting to the citadel early and heading straight to Huayna Picchu to reserve your spot, because only 400 tourists are allowed up each day (since 2009) and all adventurous hikers must set out for the peak by 1 pm.

Please note that in order to undertake this hike, it is first necessary to fill out a record form with your name and identity document information, stating that you have entered of your own free will. We recommend leaving behind any heavy backpacks, but make sure to take lots of water with you.

This hike is not recommended for the elderly, expectant mothers, persons with heart conditions, or those afraid of heights.
