You have come a long way, and it has taken you a long time to get here. This view is as good as it gets!!!! Yes, you are going to have to CLIMB some stairs to get here, but what a reward!

If we knew the climb was so intense, we probably wouldn't have made it. However, we were very glad once we got to the top (and back to Machu Picchu!). The hike is definitely hard, but the views from the top are ridiculously cool. We caught up with a family we'd met earlier on our trip, so we had a blast going at it together. Give it at least a try, you won't regret it.

Huayna Picchu which means "Young Peak" is the large mountain that sits behind Machu Picchu. I wasn't able to climb this due to lack of fitness, but anyone who is an able hiker should be able to reach the summit for the spectacular views over the ancient city.

We climbed this with our guide. Let me start by saying we are in our early sixties. This fact was evident in that we never saw anyone during the climb that was over 30-35. Not that it can't be done, but you better be in condition to do the climb. Entry is restricted by the entry time of your ticket and this ensures safety. Once you are doing it you will see why this is important. The lower portion is through the rainforest but as you climb, some of the steps become narrower and narrower. At some points the steps are only maybe 4 inches deep and 1 foot wide. When you go through the tunnel it is maybe 3 feet of clearance. Thus if crowded it would be of concern. Once you are at the top it is amazing. Direct view down to Machu Picchu and the valley. Was the climb physically demanding - yes. Would we do it again - probably once was enough but we are very glad we did.
