Incredible, terrifying, and absolutely breathtaking!

Not for the faint of heart, but worth every drop of sweat and every scary dropoff once you reach the summit!

Difficult and nerve-wracking at various points of the hike - even at the very top. But as most of the reviews point out, it's a cannot miss...so get those tired legs loosened up from your trek and get after it

Oh so scary once you're almost to the top. It's a very challenging hike. But it's amazing.

Stair, stairs, and more stairs. Great views of Machu Picchu when you get to the top. Be prepared for dazzling drop offs.

The best views of Macchu Picchu are from Huayna Picchu in my opinion. However, this was an extremely challenging hike especially immediately after the Inca trail. Think climbing stairs for about an hour that are very narrow and steep. Worth it for the incredible views

Walking to the top of this mountain, although not easy, it was for me a great experience. Admire the site constructed by the Incas at the top and the sacred stone, it was an amazing moment. It was a rainy day, light rain with some fog, but it was not an impediment to enjoy this fantastic journey.
