The hike up Huayna Picchu was challenging and incredible. The park only lets 400 people a day climb; the first 200 people can climb between 7 and 8 am and the other 200 people can start climbing at 10 am. The Inca’s had built some stone steps but other parts are dirt paths or trails. It’s steep, narrow, twisty path that at most times only one person is going up or down. After the hour or so hike, the view is worth the effort. Looking back down at Machu Picchu, the ruins appear incredibly small and the people are ants. The way the ruins are laid out makes the landscape look like a Condor bird. This hidden city is one of my top favourite historical sites. Machu Picchu, let alone Peru, is an amazing place to explore.
