Huayna Picchu, also known as Young Mountain in its translation from Quechua into Spanish, and is located at 2,667m in the region of Cusco. Its circular shape base is surrounded by the Urubamba River, to the north of the citadel of Machu Picchu. Every step of this journey is worth it because you get to experience a view of the Inca land that few get to see. Experience the citadel in its fullest and most spectacular angle.
The journey to the Huayna Picchu is one of the most complicated, riskiest and probably the most difficult to undertake. It requires physical strength, determination, and vigour to reach the top. The journey will take about 1 hour up steep stairs. The road starts in the Sacred Rock (Roca Sagrada), where you will find dense vegetation, a steep and narrow path, and granite stairs with uneven steps, so you must be very careful.
According to the story, Huayna Picchu was the monitoring centre of the citadel of Machu Picchu since this archaeological complex was threatened by other surrounding cultures for its pristine lands. With the construction of this peak, the Incas would be alerted about any attack.
At the peak of this mountain, you can see a lot of buildings used for crops near the abyss. From this point, you can also witness glorious Machu Picchu, the wonderful Urubamba River, and to the north you can enjoy a view of the Temple of the Moon.
