Great tour of the Macchu Pichu complex, one of the wonders of the world. Note that the main mountain and the smaller mountain in the complex (Huayna Picchu) are closed owing to Covid. It is still a superb 2.5- 3 hour tour. If you are staying in Aguas Calientes, you can buy a round-trip bus ticket to get to the site, which is a long walk otherwise.

Take your Time to get up to the mountain, the path is quite challenging but doable unless you are a person with overweight, if you smoke or if you never exercise. If two of this three conditions happen to you you will have great views but will most likely not make the 2,800 steps and 600meter until the top. Calculate enough waiting time (1h min) for the bus bringing you back from the ruins to Machu Picchu town, this was very important as we had to catch a train.

I got up early in the morning and was in time for 7 o'clock admission. Arrived at the climbing gate at 7:30. Since I started climbing, I was breathless because of the highlands, and climbed slowly with many rests. Along the way, we encouraged a stranger and headed for the summit. When we reached the top, everyone was happy and a good experience. When I got off the mountain, it was already 12:00. Given that he had no time to see Machu Picchu, he found that the person who climbed the mountain could go out once for rest and lunch and re-enter. When we had lunch and went to the entrance gate, the gatekeeper smiled and re-entered. Therefore, the Machu Picchu ruins were also enjoyed. I am satisfied.
