Can I Climb to Huayna Picchu?
Climb to Huayna Picchu is an experience full adrenaline.
Before you have know that Huayna Picchu or Wayna Pikchu is a mountain. It rises over Machu Picchu and The Ancient Incas built a trail up the side of the Huayna Picchu also built temples and terraces on its top. The peak of Huayna Picchu is about 8,920 ft above sea level, or about 1,180 ft higher than Machu Picchu. This hike is around 1hr steep ascent – there are sheer drops on the side, so if you are afraid of heights, this is not for you! Coming down will also be around 1hr approx.
Please note that you need to reserve permits for Climb to Huayna Picchu Mountain in advance.
There are 400 permits available per day and split into the following departure times:
- Climb To Huayna picchu Group 1 : 7am-8am slot (if you choose this slot you will lose your guided tour of Machupicchu)
- Climb to Huayna picchu Group 2 : 10-11am slot (this is our preferred time slot for our passengers as it means you can have your tour of Machupicchu first followed by the hike)
The cost to add on Huayna Picchu to your program is US$ 75 per person payable via Paypal in advance. Effectively the cost of the permit includes entrance to Machupicchu + Huaynapicchu. Unfortunately at this moment the INC(Institute National Of Culture-Péru) does not have a separate Huayna Picchu permit to combine with the Inca trail permit which already includes the Machu Picchu entrance.
Please your entrance to Machu Picchu and permit for Climb to Huayna Picchu are with your name and passport details so permits non transferable and non refundable.
