Huayna Picchu, Machu Picchu

#1 of 7 in Parks in Machu Picchu
Mountain · Nature / Park
Shaped like a pyramid, Huayna Picchu towers over Machu Picchu, the famed lost city of the Incas. The viewpoint, accessible by a steep track and restricted to 400 visitors per day, offers perhaps the most iconic view of one of the world's most popular attractions. Reward yourself for the challenging hike up the hill by taking the photo of your life, with the ancient city in the background. Reserve your place on the track well in advance, as you'll have plenty of competition no matter what time of year you visit. To plan Machu Picchu vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
