Frequently Asked Questions about Machu Picchu and Machu Picchu Mountain Tour

What is the difference between Machu Picchu Mountain and Huayna Picchu Mountain?

Surely, if you travel to Machu Picchu, you will have to choose between visiting Machu Picchu or Huayna Picchu and you may have wondered what the difference is between these two mountains. While the Inca citadel gives you the opportunity to climb both spectacular mountains, they offer equally marvelous views but have completely different characteristics such as their trails, views, landscapes, and ticket availability.
Regarding the trails, first of all, both mountains are quite high. Huayna Picchu, also known as the "Young Mountain," has an altitude of 2,693 meters above sea level, with extremely narrow and almost vertical trails, making the journey short but more challenging. On the other hand, Machu Picchu Mountain, or the "Old Mountain," reaches an altitude of 3,082 meters above sea level. The path to the summit of this mountain is longer but less demanding than that of Huayna Picchu. It has a wider trail and can be traversed by anyone, although special care must be taken with altitude sickness.

Regarding the views and landscapes, both offer fabulous panoramic views, but Huayna Picchu provides a panoramic view of the citadel. You will also find various archaeological sites surrounded by a great diversity of flora and fauna. On the other hand, Machu Picchu Mountain also offers a magnificent view of the archaeological site, the canyon crossed by the Vilcanota River, and the mountains, including the Vilcabamba and Salkantay mountain ranges. While there are no archaeological structures on this mountain, there is a wide variety of flora and fauna.

Important: Many people believe that the classic photo of Machu Picchu is taken from the summit of Huayna Picchu, but it is not. To take that photo, you have to go to the Guardhouse..

Regarding the availability of tickets, both mountains have a daily visitor limit. Huayna Picchu has limited spaces available for reservation and it is usually difficult to obtain tickets for this mountain. Therefore, it is necessary to purchase your ticket months in advance. On the other hand, Machu Picchu Mountain has slightly more available spaces, and it is usually easier to acquire the tickets.

What are the trails like on Machu Picchu Mountain?

Climbing this mountain is not complicated as it has wide and safe trails, making it suitable for tourists of any age. However, while doing so, you must respect the signs placed along the path. Once you reach the summit, you can take many photos and appreciate beautiful views, including the mountain range of the Andes.

Do I need to go to Machu Picchu Mountain with a tour guide?

Going to Machu Picchu Mountain with a tour guide is not mandatory, so you can do it on your own without any problem. Since it is a more adventurous journey and there are no temples or Inca structures along the way, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the exotic flora and fauna. Therefore, a guide is not necessary, but if you still desire the service, you can inquire about it.

What should I know before climbing Machu Picchu Mountain?

CuscoPeru.com recommends the following for a pleasant visit to Machu Picchu Mountain:

  • It is necessary to have good physical fitness.
  • You need to purchase an additional ticket in addition to the Machu Picchu ticket.
  • Tickets during peak seasons tend to sell out quickly, so it is recommended to make a reservation in advance.
  • Always carry your identification document or passport with you.
  • To start your journey to this mountain, the entrance gate is located within the citadel.
