Exhilirating beauty ! I have to put in a good word for Guillermo our guide who was prompt ,knowledgable , organized and catered to what we wanted and at our pace.Traveled with 6 athletic kids ages 8,11,13,15,18 &21. We climbed Huaynapicchu.I was a little concerned with safety which you should (pictures below). My 8 year old and I climbed leisurely up to about 90% of Huaynapicchu stopping to rest after steep segments. The hike up to this point was not too concerning and good enough for us.( I did not want my 8 year old to get too tired to hike Machupichu ruins after) The rest went to the top at a faster pace with our guide. I felt better that my kids were with an expirienced guide that has hiked Huaynapicchu many many times and left the ultimate decision to my oldest daughter to turn back if she felt it was too dangerous. Well they conquered Huaynapicchu! She said the last 10% of the hike was the scariest she's ever done. At the top they pretty much stayed low to the ground and moved about on their "butt".
Hope this review helps you decide if you would like to hike the optional Huaynapicchu. Machupicchu alone was quite the hike and spectacular. Lastly, I recommend guillermo If you need a guide in Cusco or Machupicchu email: firstname.lastname@example.org
