Wayna Picchu

Hiking in Machu Picchu

The steep mountain of Wayna Picchu, located at the far end of the ruins, is featured in the most iconic shots of Machu Picchu. Thanks to excellent Inca engineering, the trail is not as hard as it looks but sturdy footwear and good fitness are recommended. It requires a separate ticket obtained with your entrance ticket purchase. These spots sell out a week ahead in low season and a month ahead in high season, so plan accordingly.
