Huayna Picchu is a steep climb of an hour and is hard work but the views are spectacular and worth the effort. I bought the Circuit 4 ticket and was very disappointed with the lack of access to the main areas at Machu Pichu. Circuit 4 covered a very small part on the lower edge of the citadel. Another circuit might allow more access but I was disappointed with the access given I paid $70 for the ticket and hundreds of dollars more to get there. Machu PIchu is an amazing site and location but I left thinking the whole place was set up up to make money from tourists rather than give them a good experience for the sizeable investment they'd made to get there.

The Huayna Picchu trail is really worth it since it offers amazing alternative views of the Machu Picchu citadel. The ascension is not this hard, I am subject to vertigo and I did not really suffer. What surprised us is that with our Huayna Picchu ticket (circuit 4 + Huayna Picchu), we couldn't have access to the Guardian's house viewpoint which allows to take the well-known picture of the citadel, the one displayed on post cards and also on GetYourGuide website. Then I suggest GetYourGuide website to remove the corresponding picture from the activity's description, as it could mislead future travellers. Except that everything went perfect and once again, the Huayna Picchu is amazing. Thanks a lot. Camille

The views were just amazing. My tickets were for 6am for Machu Picchu and 7am for the hike. We arrived about an hour late and still were able to do the activities. Highly recommend you print your tickets to Machu Picchu and Huayana Picchu because they will give you trouble if the tickets are not printed. Get a guide otherwise you’ll miss the point go going to Machu Pichu. Last but not least, DO NOT call the site ruins. It’s offensive to the locals.
