Questions about Machu Picchu and Machu Picchu Mountain Tour

Surely if you travel to Machu Picchu you will have to choose between visiting Machu Picchu mountain or Huayna Picchu mountain and you may have wondered what is the difference between these two mountains, although the Inca citadel gives you the possibility to climb these two spectacular mountains, both have equally wonderful views but totally different characteristics such as its trails, its views, its landscapes and the availability of tickets.

Regarding the trails, first both mountains are quite high. Huayna Picchu or also known as "Young Mountain" is a mountain with an altitude of 2 667.58 meters above sea level, with extremely narrow trails and an almost vertical ascent, the route is short but more challenging. On the other hand, the Machu Picchu Mountain or "Old Mountain" reaches 3,082 masl. The way to the top of this mountain is longer, but less demanding than Huayna Picchu, has a wider path and can be traveled by anyone, although we must be especially careful with altitude sickness.

Regarding the views and landscapes, both have fabulous views, offering panoramic views of the citadel, you can also find different archaeological sites surrounded by a great diversity of flora and fauna. The Machu Picchu mountain and its archaeological sites offer a magnificent view of the archaeological site, the canyon crossed by the Vilcanota River and the mountains, including the Vilcabamba mountain range with its APU PUMASILLO and the snow-capped Salkantay.

Important: Many believe that from the top of Huayna Picchu you take the classic photo of Machu Picchu, but no. To take it, you have to go to the top of Huayna Picchu. To take it, you have to go to the Casa del Vigilante.

Our guide will accompany you to Machu Picchu Mountain, and the entrance has two time slots:

  • 7:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.
  • 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

You should know that the number of tickets for this mountain is limited, so it is advisable to reserve in advance. The ascent takes approximately one hour and fifty minutes, and it will be an unforgettable experience. The final reward will be the beautiful view and the satisfaction of completing the challenge; the effort will be worth it. The "Machu Picchu Mountain" is not a very steep path, it is entertaining, but you will need all your energy for a visit that lasts approximately 04 hours, including the ascent, the time at the summit, and the return journey.

Climbing this mountain is not complicated, as it has wide and safe trails, so it is suitable for tourists of any age, but in doing so you must respect the signs posted on the road, reaching the top you can take many pictures and appreciate beautiful views and the mountain range of the Andes.
Climbing Machu Picchu mountain with a guide is not mandatory; however, it is highly recommended to do it with a specialist guide, our service includes guiding, so feel free to book with us.
