After Pisco, Ishinca and Chopicalqui this would be the peak that would leave us sore? Hiked it RT from Aguascalientes. Steep and sweaty.

In fact, I enjoyed the climb and the summit views more than the few hours I spent after that wandering around Machu Pichu itself. I guess I´m culturally challenged ...

Ascended the peak with Nizhoni, Lev, Jerry, and Sean of Team Brazil Nuts. Another enjoyable though painful couple of hours with my great friends.

It took an hour and 20 minutes to summit from the Inka Trail entrance. We felt the steps since we had just done the trail (many steps). We also had a time issue with getting back for a scheduled lunch. If you can fit it in I recommend doing this mountain. There weren´t the crowds we saw waiting to climb its more famous neighbour. We had a great view on a clear day.

Great views of Machu Picchu. The clouds had just cleared up, but not enough to see Salkantay.

Early start at 5:00 am from Aguas Calientes. We followed the trail up to the mountain until getting to Machu Picchu`s summit 4,200 m (13,776 ft) easily identified by a Pachakutek flag. The morning was foggy.. but for a few seconds the clouds went away and we were able to see the whole neighborhood and Huayna Picchu just below us.

Once we got back to the neighborhood we started hiking up Huayna Picchu 2,701 (8860 ft). Now with a blue clear sunny sky. The view from the summit was amazing and unforgetable.

I enjoyed Machu Picchu, but would probably never do it again. I did the 4 day, 3 night hike in one of the most rainy months with a pack that was way too heavy. You don't even hike on the original Inca Trail until day three and see few ruins. The cloud cover finally burned off around 1pm and got amazing views of Machu Picchu and climbed Huayna Picchu for the views

This hike is more of what the actual Incan trail would have looked like. It felt like something out of Indiana Jones or something, with the trail clutter and trail rocks over turned with llamas grazing everywhere. beautiful redorange flowers on top. the sky, clouds and earth are absolutly amazing in peru and especially cuzco.

good quick hike, but the incan steps were quite steep, but not as bad as some of the steps on the other peak

The sky feels so much closer to the earth in Peru - and the clouds broke nicely for me at the summit with blue skies spilling everywhere I looked. After all of those endless Inca steps, I almost expected God to reach down and high five me when I reached the summit.

Wow, a great hike. Got to the top from MP in 1 hr 5 mins and stayed on the top for about 30 mins. It was pretty foggy and the views would open up only a couples minutes at a time. Sweet exposure on the summit ridge!

Spectacular views from the top. I wish we didn't have to come down... seriously! It was way steep and the Incan steps were really narrow. We all made it in one piece though. It was a great experience.

Oh boy was I sick! I had the trout down at Aguas Calientes and got food poisoning. Beautiful, but I was quite sick.

I climbed during the rainy season but got lucky with the weather. I saw three snakes during my one hour hike. Beautiful views from the top.

The Peruvian flag on the top was pretty shredded.
