I don't think it can be done unless you are coming in on one of the Inca trail hikes. AC is the small town at the base of MP only way in appeared to be 1 hike up from AC, 2 take bus up from AC, 3 hike in via SunGate as part of trek. Xochitl may have other info but there seemed to be only the two gates at MP one if you come by Sungate other if you come up the hill...pretty inaccessible place otherwise.

You could stay in AC and still make it up the hill for sunrise.. buses start very early or you can hike up the hill
