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.

A must for anyone visiting Machu Pichu. The climb in itself is quite fun, fairly easy but steep in some places. You can't beat those views...

Definitely one of the highlights of the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu. Gotta love crawling through the tunnels on the way up. The view from the summit is amazing!

After three days of biking and trekking through the jungle. The climb up huayna picchu was definitely the highlight of the machu picchu visit, but make sure to go get a stamp on your entry pass early, and bring enough water for the (~2h) roundtrip.

recastWayna Picchu  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 24, 2009


My buddy and I woke up at 4am to hike from Augas Calientes to the Inca ruins below Machu Picchu. From there we hiked to the summit of Wayna Picchu and then descended in just one hour. We were happy to have cut the expected two hour climb time in half.

It was fun but there were just so many people on the mountain that you constantly have to go off path to work around slow people.

Surely the most meaningful and memorable short climb and view of my life in one of the most impressive and moving places on this planet.

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.
