The Mountain Machu Picchu, is located southwest of the Inca City of Machu Picchu and is visible on the left side of the traditional Inca Trail, the road passes through a not very steep trail, covered in most of its sections by lush vegetation, typical of jungle. It is a dirt road, stone and numerous steps irregular, restored and fitted out for visitors. The entire tour, we took a period of approximately 3 to 4 hours depending on the physical state and the pace at which ascends.
The reward will give the mountaintop is invaluable, with unique views of the Archaeological and Natural Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, the majestic canyon that forms the side of the Vilcanota, with a background of mountains covered with vegetation on the one hand, and the other, the chain of mountains of the Cordillera Vilcabamba.
Machu Picchu Mountain is open year round. However, between the months of November to April, we have enough chance of showers, so the road is wet, hampering traffic. The climate in this region is often unpredictable at any time of year, so you should be prepared with clothes for rain and sun, as well as sunscreen and rain poncho, as appropriate. We recommend using comfortable hiking boots with non-slip floor.
