After being in Machu Picchu itself, which was sooo breathtaking, this was a great way to finish the day. Spectacular views with a different perspective on the citadel. Well worth it.

AMAZING. As good as it gets!

Wear sturdy shoes for this very nice walk up to the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu. The views of the valley and the site are awesome. Took us about an hour up and half that down, very glad we took the trail.

less crowded trail. a nice place to just sit down and enjoy the scenery

Hiked up to the sun gate after we came back down from Huayna Picchu. My legs were jelly to start with and I thought it would just be a little, short walk to the sun gate. Wrong. Slow and steady uphill most of the way with steeper bits and though and it takes about 45 min to an hour to get there (had to take a break or 5 lol). It was much quieter up there and it was a beautiful hike! Totally recommend.

After the little 45 minute hike, you get a really nice overall view of Machu Pichu and the surrounding forest !

Did the 4 day hike back when it wasn't so touristy. Hear it's getting very overrun by tourists....

Macchu PIcchu gets 5 stars, and the masses of tourists get 2 stars. Impressive and beautiful, but looks like it's becoming a real tourist trap.

Much more enjoyable hanging out up at the Sun Gate and watching folks (especially the porters) come through.

Amazing views of high forest. Makes you wonder what else is hiding out undiscovered.
