The Machu Picchu Huayna Picchu Tour of two days is one of our signature tours. This tour offers a complete overview of the Inca citadel. It gives you the opportunity of witnessing the beauty of Machu Picchu citadel from the top of the Huayna Picchu Mountain.
Huayna Picchu or Wayna Picchu is one of the sacred peaks in the citadel. In Quechua, it means younger peak. Back in the days, Machu Picchu citadel was prone to attacks from other communities. The Incas guarded their sacred citadel from the top of the peak.
Climbing Huayna Picchu mountain is a challenging experience. Just as the Inca Trail, the authorities restrict access to a limited number of people. The permit often tends to be sold out months in advance.
This tour includes the same experience as the Machu Picchu 2 days tour. However, this includes a hike to Huayna Picchu mountain.
