What will I need to take to tour the Huayna Picchu mountain?

The main thing to tour the Huayna Picchu mountain is to be safe; We recommend you come with hiking shoes, especially if it comes during the rainy season; Well, despite having huge advantages, remember that the roads are made of stone and can be very slippery when wet. You will need to wear rain protection, even if you don’t come during the rainy season; in Machu Picchu it can rain at any time so come prepared. Another thing you can not forget for any reason is your camera, with memory and extra batteries. The opportunities to get incredible views of Machu Picchu from the Huayna Picchu mountain are endless. You should also bring plenty of water, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, and everything should fit in a small bag or backpack, as you will need your hands free to get around the impressive trails next to terrifying cliffs.

What are the alternatives in case of not reaching a ticket for the Huayna Picchu mountain?

There are 800 tickets available and you can book them up to 2 weeks in advance; unless of course, come during the high season (from June to August); In this case, all entrance tickets to Machu Picchu must be reserved a few months in advance.

What is the temple of the moon in Huayna Picchu?

The temple of the moon is the most impressive construction that can be seen on the Huayna Picchu mountain, and one of the most impressive in the entire Machu Picchu national park. It is built inside a cave at the top of the mountain and the quality of lithic work that can be found in it, is comparable only with places like the temple of the sun or the temple of the 3 windows in Machu Picchu.

I am afraid of heights, can I travel the mountain Huayna Picchu?

The truth is, no; If you think you cannot overcome the fear of heights, it is better to overlook this mountain and choose one of the incredible short walks you can have in Machu Picchu; you can opt for the Machu Picchu mountain, or the walk to the door of the Sun “Inti Punku”; However, if you can overcome your fear of heights, you can take one of the best experiences of your life.
