Reviewed July 7, 2007

While visiting Machu Picchu in June 2007 my cousin and I (who are both over 50) decided to do the hike up to Intipunku, (The Gate of the Sun). We had been deterred from climbing Huayana Picchu and the hike to Intipunku was our next choice. The start of the track was a little difficult to find from where we were in the Machu Picchu ruins, but once we found it we were pleased that it was not too steep nor too narrow. You do need to take it easy, but with the panorama below you, the stillness to enjoy and the sense of achievement once you reach Intipunku it is definitely worth it. Once we had reached Intipunku we walked a little way down the Inca Trail on the other side just so we could honestly say we had been on the Inca Trail! If you had someone to assist you with climbing over some of the large stones etc I think anyone of any physical condition or age could do the walk up to Intipunku.
