After a long walk on the Inca Trail - reaching the Sun Gate was a great feeling of accomplishment. We entered in the late afternoon - and I do not regret taking this approach. There were fewer crowds, the sky was clear and Machu Picchu was not crowded at that time of day.
After some picture time we headed down into the ruins.
My advise - take your time and soak it all in. You will probably not want to walk back up there during your stay.
