Boriss AndeanGreat hike!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2007

Boriss Andean

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.

The morning was mystical and the fog very thick, then after an hour on the summit of wayna picchu the fog lifted and the views were spectacular. worth the early morning wake-up call to be one of the first up the mountain.

I did it the day after completing the Inka Trail from km 88 (and after touring Machu Picchu). I wanted to push myself and do it relatively quickly - did it in 36 minutes - not bad for an old fart of 62.

Date Climbed: Apr 28, 2007


Had a grand day out !
Sun all day long, which made the ascent very enjoyable. And the view on top is amazing !
Great place to have lunch.
Don't climb Huayna Picchu too late (before 10am), as only 400 people are allowed each day.

Hiked through the fog to the summit, trail had a very mystical vibe to it. Was disappointed that I didn't budget enough time to loop to the Gran Caverna - heard that it is spectacular on that side of the mountain.

Did the four day hike and finished by summiting Huayna Picchu, June 2004. Did a day trip to MP in Aug 2006 but didn't summit because it started to rain heavily.

A must climb for the view and the beautiful old trail with lots of steps. There is actually a loop trail, I think it is the Temple of the Moon, come down that, nobody is on it.

Trekking on the Inca Trail for four days is an awesome way to arrive at Macchu Picchu, and climbing Huayna Picchu while you're there is certainly worth the time. Great views!

Gorgeous hike - took the back way down to the Gran Caverna, which looked much wilder than the other ruins. Much steeper down the back than up the front, but well worth it to avoid the many, many other people on the front side. I have never been on so crowded a summit!!

i was sick as a dog (usual developing country troubles) and it made hiking up huayna picchu feel tougher than mt rainier. :-) awesome views, don't go to machu picchu without doing this hike!

Fun and easy climb to a spectacular mountain seen on almost all peruvian postcards! May is a perfect month for Machu Picchu. Everything perfectly clear and no huge crowds of people on the trek.

Amazing. I had to look at my pictures to convince myself it was real! Peru is an excellent way to acclimate on the way to Aconcagua.

One of the classic hikes of all time. Six of us made the trek from km 82 to Winay Wayna in 2 days. On day 3, we took the short hike down to Machu Picchu, where we visited for the morning. Then, we climbed the short distance up Huayna Picchu for a picturesque look at Machu Picchu. Also checked out Gran Caverna and Huchuypicchu. Great weather, great tour guides and porters. No problems.

Went there with PO and Benoît, also from France. Beautifull trekking up to Huayna Picchu and (that goes without saying) incredible views on Machu Picchu. "Climb" in a bit less than 30 minutes, nobody up there...

lucaskerperRoute Climbed: Huayna Picchu from Aguas Calientes. Date Climbed: December 2005  Sucess!


I took the little buses to Ollantaytambo from Cuzco, then i hoped on the train, and headed up to aguas calientes for the night. i meet some awesome argentinan amigos in the train, and we ended up sharing a room in a hostel. early the next morning we hiked up from the town all the way to the ruins. the hike took about an hour. machu picchu is so amazing. it is a very spiritual place. we hiked up Huayna Picchu, that afternoon, and shared check fulls of coca leaves. it was amazing.

The incas ruins and the views were spectacular from the summit. Climbing this mountain was the finishing touch for our journey to Perú. Lobelia.
