Visiting Machu Picchu. Need suggestions!

Postby christoff1980 » Tue Mar 13, 2018 4:19 am

I’m going to visit Peru by June, and Machu Picchu is part of my itinerary. This place is very ancient and I love discovering new things, especially when it talks about a country’s historical site. Aside from that I’m also taking part of the singles latin tour in Peru, plus a free tour in the country’s featured destinations. Now I need suggestions on the possible activities I can enjoy in the place. Please do tell me some Machu Picchu actions I can do while also enjoying my stay in Peru. Thanks!

Hiking to WaynaPicchu !

It takes about an hour or so going to the top of the Mountain of Wayna Picchu. From there you can see an amazing view of MachuPicchu

Believe it or not, you actually have to reserve your spot ahead of time for this now.

Definitely agreed on the hiking up to Wayna Picchu. Great views and really cool ruins on the mountain. Just prep yourself if you're afraid of heights.

This guide is pretty helpful for hiking up Wayna Picchu. https://www.cachilife.com/hiking-huayna-picchu-complete-guide/
