Hiking at Machu Picchu
Huayna Picchu Mountain
The ancient Inca footpath leading up Huayna Picchu, the dome-shaped peak rising up behind the Inca citadel, is the most sought after hike at Machu Picchu. Some of the higher sections of trail are narrow with steep drop-offs. There are handrails and ropes to grab onto, but it’s a frightening experience for anyone with a fear of heights. If you have a fear of heights, and still want to do a good hike, Machu Picchu Mountain is a great alternative.
Entry Times: 7am-8am | 10am-11am
Time: 45 min-1.5 hrs to reach summit
Machu Picchu Mountain
Machu Picchu Mountain (Montana Machu Picchu) is nearly double the height of Huayna Picchu. It’s a steep but rewarding hike and the 360 degree view awaiting you at the summit is stellar.
Entry Times: 7am-8am | 9am-10am
Time: 1.5-2.5 hrs to reach summit
The hike to the Sun Gate (Inti Punku) is much easier compared to the steep climbs up Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain. Beginning near the Caretaker Hut (or Guardhouse), wooden signs for “Inti Punku” point you in the direction of its cobbled trail that inclines gradually up the mountain away from the main citadel.
Time: 30 min-1.5 hrs to reach the Sun Gate at the top
The trail to the Inca Bridge wraps around the backside of the mountain away from the Machu Picchu citadel. It’s not a strenuous hike, though the sheer drop-offs may be frightening for anyone with a fear of heights. The level trail offers spectacular views over the plunging valleys below. At the end of the stone path you reach the Inca Bridge, which consists of four long wooden planks spanning a wide gap in the stone path. The bridge is believed to have been part of a secret entrance to Machu Picchu. You can take as many photos of the Inca Bridge as you like, but it’s prohibited to cross.
Time: 20-30 min to reach the Inca Bridge
