Fun climb on a cloudy day. Took 2 hours round trip. Sat around for about 20 mins on top before I could get a clear shot of Machu Picchu.

Very fun, but also short hike. Nice views on Machu Picchu and the valley. Personally, I enjoyed Huchuy Picchu even better... I was completeley alone there and the views on the ruins. Also there is a small "climbing" section with an old rope to help the ascent. Not really necessary, but fun nevertheless!

Date Climbed: Dec 3, 2008


We had an amazing trek in during the beginning of December, and hiked up to the top of Huayna Picchu in the morning after checking out the ruins. Great views from the top, and some morning cloud cover made the views even better!

Went up in fog hoping it would burn off. It didn't. Not so scary when you can only see 20 feet. Did the A Gran Caverna trail to Temple of the Moon. Only 7 people did that trail while we were up there - us (5) and 2 others. There are no signs identifying this as the trail to Temple of the Moon. It took a total of 4 fun hours.

TonkaJust one of those places  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2012


We did the climb on our 2nd day at MP and it was wonderful. The place gets under your skin after a while as does Peru. I was very surprised to see people trying to get up with no water and flip flops. There are areas with some pretty signifigant exposure.

Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2009


Amazing trip. We took the Jungle Inca Trail from Cuzco and biked 60km through the Andes in the rain, straight down. Then the next day was a long hike over all kinds of mountains in full packs. The next day a shorter hike to AC. MP was awesome but honestly the views from the top of Huayna was better because we earned it and it wasn't so crowded back there. I had wanted to climb that peak for 8 years and it was real fulfilling.

msihlHuayna Picchu ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 9, 2011


Had to get up at 3am to get in line (4am) for the bus that is heading up the mountain at 5.30am. About 100 people, who had been hiking up at night, were already waiting at the gate. Only the first 400 get a permit, divided into 2 groups at 7-8am and 10-11am. It is totally worth it though. The view of the Inka ruins on Machu Picchu are spectacular and Huayna Picchu has some impressive ruins itself, the former seat of the high priest, built into the steep upper slopes.
