Day 2 : HuaynaPicchu – Machu Picchu – Cusco
We will pick you up from your hotel at about 6 a.m. and go to Machu Picchu. We will go to the entrance of Huayna Picchu at about 7 a.m. and hike up the mountain. It will take about 60 minutes to reach the top, and once there you will be able to enjoy the great view of Machu Picchu and the nature that surrounds it. It will take about 50 minutes to go back down. At 10 a.m. we will have a guided visit of Machu Picchu. After the tour (about 2 and a half hours) you will have free time to keep exploring and to take pictures. You will then be able to take the bus back to Aguas Calientes, and you will have free time to explore the town, go to the hot srpings, or visit the handicraft market. At about 6:30 p.m. we will begin to return to Cusco and arrive there at about 10:30 p.m.
-If there are no entrances left for Huayna Picchu, you may take the hike up Machu Picchu mountain. This is a very good alternative since the view of the ruins of Machu Picchu on this mountain is from the other side of the valley opposite Huayna Picchu.
