first of all machu picchu was amazing,but only can re-entry twice! wayna picchu was amazing too but there were only 2 slot of time 200 people can get inside each time, need to book the ticket before. My slot was 10-11 entry time, so we thought we could spend more time in machu picchu so we reached the entry gate at 11.
I recently visited Peru for a wedding in Lima…I took it upon myself to extend my trip by visiting Cusco so I could do some sightseeing and hiking. I researched and found Peru Wayna Picchu…reached out to them, told them when I would be there and what I wanted to do. They in return sent me a whole itinerary detailing each day. The trips were absolutely amazing, the tour guides were extremely knowledgeable, personable and fun.
I have known and worked with Karen Lizbeth Espinoza Ovalle for over ten years on numerous travel plans. I have currently made sixteen trips to Cusco and she has been involved in every trip I have made. She is very professional and extremely courteous to work with. I would recommend using Karen for any travel plans! Not only that; but she is such a wonderful person to know.
What else to say about this beautiful, historic and amazing place. We hiked up the Wayna piccu to get an overlook on the maccu piccu and where lucky. It was absolutely breathtaking!
It was an incredible experience, the quality of service was exceptional, I loved it, I recommend it!!
It was an incredible experience!! I really enjoyed this trip, getting to know the wonder of the world, thanks to the guides, the logistics, the whole team in general, really exceptional!!
You’ll need to plan this at least 6 months in advance. I suggest the early time slot if you can. If you’ve acclimated in Cusco or the Inca trail this will be easier for you. Plan on a very steep and hard trek to the top. This is not for children. If you expect a nice path with easy stairs like you’ll find in Machu Picchu don’t waste your money. When you make it to the top, wow….
Our trip in May was my second to Cusco and the first one for my friend. I already had in mind to visit WaynaPicchu since I couldn’t do it in my first trip (my kids were too small for such a hike) and it was more than I expected. Maybe it was the anticipation, or maybe it was the hour hike it took to get there…
It was an awesome climb! And it was Not near as physically challenging as the four day Inca Trail. Looks intimidating but it was fairly safe for a 60+ year old (that is in good physical shape). It took my wife & I about 30 to 40 minutes to climb. It had steel cable handrails along the mountain side for many parts of the climb. You should be acclimated to the elevation prior to climbing. And train on hikes and/or stair master. Spectacular views. Worth the climb and price.
