Circuit 4 + Huynapicchu mountain
Huaynapicchu is the most popular mountain to climb because the Incas built amazing terraces and structures on its summit. Also because the views of Machu Picchu, the Urubamba river and the Salkantay mountain can be seen as well and this is why Huaynapicchu gets sold out months in advance. The activity requires 3 hours total and about 750 stone steps. The Huaynapicchu ticket however will not give you access to the classic photo of Machu Picchu so it is recommended that you purchase an additional ticket for circuit 1 or 2 in addition to your Huaynapicchu ticket.

INCA TRAIL TICKETS MACHUPICCHU

National Geographic rates the Inca Trail as the top 25 hikes in the world. And, according to Time magazine, Peru's Inca Trail to Machupicchu is perhaps the world's greatest hike because it combines the best of both types of travel: a four-to-five day walk to the spectacular lost city of Machupicchu that goes through snowcapped Andes Mountains and then the Amazon jungle; creating some of the world's most dramatic and beautiful scenery and terrain. Many experts believe that the Incas, the advanced South American civilization trekked this 27-mile trail five centuries ago as a holy pilgrimage that prepared visitors to enter the sacred citadel of Machupicchu. After trekking the Inca Trail, you will also feel the same mystic experience. Machupicchu tickets are included in all of our Inca Trail trek tours.
