Advice from people who have been there

Huayna Picchu Mountain

Juan SBy: Juan S

“Unforgettable mountain“

“I booked the entrance to the huayna 4 months before, I had the first shift, from 7 to 8, I arrived at 8:10, but I was able to enter. On the day of the visit to Machu Picchu I recommend starting very early, I started the queue for the buses from Machu Picchu from 5:15 pm and almost did not arrive. I recommend being in the bus queue before 5 am. The mountain was great, steps of stones, beautiful vegetation, and although I did with drizzle, the landscapes were excellent. The view from the top is simply amazing, unparalleled. You have to be careful on the descent, but it is not very complicated.“
