WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MOUNTAIN HUAYNA PICCHU AND MACHUPICCHU MONTAÑA ?.
HUAYNA PICCHU: The hike to the top is approximately 45 minutes, along the narrow and steep Inca stairs. Once at the top, you can see the citadel of Machu Picchu and its surroundings. This is the famous peak at the bottom of every iconic photo of Machu Picchu. At the summit, Huayna Picchu is always a main topic on most Machu Picchu visitor lists, which means that you generally need to book months in advance. Only a certain number of people can walk this mountain every day.
Along this hike, you will see breathtaking views of the Machu Picchu ruins. The limited amount of tickets is a limit established by the Ministry of Culture in Cusco, not by INCA ADVENTOURS. This is completely out of our hands unfortunately. Tickets for this mountain are not transferable. If for a / or be suffering from vertigo or fear of height it is preferable not reserved is quite steep.
MACHUPICCHU MONTAÑA: The walk to its summit is approximately 1.30 hours. Once at the top, you get a much higher point of view, so you have an incredible view of the Machu Picchu Citadel and its surroundings. This hike is a great alternative to Huayna Picchu. Ideal for those who do not want the trouble to fight for a ticket, or who could not get one. Technically, the spaces for MOUNTAIN Machu Picchu are also limited to 400 per day, but they are rarely sold out. We simply need to reserve a space when we buy your entrance tickets. This hike is great because it will also take you high like Huayna Picchu, which offers excellent views. This hike has an easier inclination (it also makes it accessible to those who fear the heights of Huayna Picchu), but the road is much longer, which makes it equally challenging in its own way.
DO I NEED TO TAKE EXTRA MONEY TO TOUR OR WALK TO PERFORM ?.
Yes. This is very important !! We recommend that you bring 300 to 400 Peruvian soles. You may not need any of this money, but in case of an emergency, you should make sure you have enough cash. If you are participating in the Sacred Valley tour there are many places to buy gifts.
WILL WE INCLUDE WATER DURING HIKING ?.
Yes. Please bring your own water container. In case of an excursion our team will provide boiled water in lunch places and camps.
