Great hike!  Sucess!

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.

fog  Sucess!

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.

Great hike!  Sucess!

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.

Very nice ascent  Sucess!

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.

Route: From Aguas Calientes, Date: 04.25.07  Sucess!

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.

Great place  Sucess!

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.

Inca Trail Climax  Sucess!

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.

Standard Route  Sucess!

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!

Route climbed: Normal  Sucess!

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!!

Normal Route (after Lares Trek)  Sucess!

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!

Normal route  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Inca Steps Date Climbed: December 2nd, 2005  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Camino Inca km 82 Date Climbed: Sept. 21, 2005  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Normal Date Climbed: August 2000  Sucess!

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...
