Huayna Picchu mountain

Huayna Picchu Its named from the Quechua word "Huayna Picchu" which means "Young Mountain". It must have served as a ritual place or astronomical studies in order to have closer comunication with their gods 

LOCATION
It is located inside Machu Picchu Inca city, once you get into Machu Picchu Inca City, you have to take circuit number 4 then that is going to lead you direclty to Huayna Picchu entrance (do not forget to carry your Passport).

DESCRIPTION
Huayna Picchu is located to the north site of Machu Picchu city. To hike the Huayna Picchu mountain, you have reach the second checkpoint which is the entrance to Huayna Picchu and follow the path that begins a few meters behing the Sacred Rock, the Trail has very dense vegetation and in rocky formation, this path is very steep and quite narrow and includes cable railing next to stairs Trails and  granite stone were carved irregularly to open the Trail through this steep mountain, there are some that appear carved into the rock itself. The ascent takes between 40 to 50 minutes aproximatly depending on the physical condition.
The  breathtaking  of this natural formation makes it  love the Machu Picchu view from top is for those who want an unforgettable memory of the citadel view. The path to this young mountain is steep zigzagging and stairs are almost vertical with precipices, access is not too difficult,  we recommended to be careful on the way beacuse you Will find people wlaking back or others walking faster remenber to stop at the mountain site tol et them go through, definitely reach the top of Huayna Picchu is a challenge but very interesting, but once you get to the peak, it is worth the effort because the view is breathtaking. Huayna Picchu has an altitude of 2,726 meters above sea level and its summit has an area of 150 m2.

IMPORTANCE
The "Huayna Picchu" gives the characteristic geographical image to the archaeological site. At the top of this mountain there are numerous constructions on the edge of the abyss that were used for 
hornometal plants in diffrent species, perhaps considered sacred. There are also palaces near by the top, of which it is not known if it is a building that was never finished. From there you can see the full Machupicchu view about 450 meters down, the overall picture is impressive, the Urubamba Riveris running throgh the maen valley surrounding the whole Machu Picchu valley with  green and snow-capped peaks in the background. 
There are more interesting places going farter than just the top of Huayna Picchu but the peruvian govermmet decided to close down because we have sites that still need to have explore and need to be documented by archaeologists.

I did a solo 2 day short Inca trail in June 2022. It was an amazing experience, and perfect for those who want to do the Inca trail but don't have enough time for the traditional four day hike. Very happy with my experience, made stress-free by the well organised tour.

The day before the first trip, my guide Elvis met me at my hotel to explain everything I needed to prepare for the tour. On the first day, the private transport arrived… ...

The perfect organization made sure we could enjoy this beautiful trip without having to worry about anything, but in the same time the guide was flexible to adjust to our wishes. Our guide Elvis even arranged a second chance for the postcard picture with Machu Picchu (which is normally not allowed) since the weather wasn’t great on the first day.
Elvis had great knowledge on the historical and cultural background of the Inca sites, but… ...

Elvis is an amazing guide. We hiked the Incan Trail to Machu Pichu. I workout, I think of myself as pretty fit, but I definitely should have trained more. However, Elvis was with me every step of the way. He was more coach than guide. He taught me how to breathe in altitude, how to use my poles, the most efficient path, etc.… ...

Elvis (Guide) knows everything. He can explain you about the history of Incas, plants etc.
Service was excellent. They took care of us.
Made us feel safe during our hike.

Highly recommended!

We had a good experience, with seamless travel and entry etc to Machu Picchu. Very well organised. The tour guide (Grober) was knowledgeable, however also a bit awkward - he got impatient with questions, struggled to understand us a little, and went on his phone for the whole time we were at dinner. Overall we still enjoyed the experience, but this took away from it a little.
