Wayna Picchu or the Young mountain is situated at one end of Machu Picchu and has an altitude of 2667 m a.s.l. Visiting Wayna Picchu is an adventure that is worthwhile, obviously it takes a lot of physical effort as the walk takes you to the top. The walk takes between 40 (if you walk really fast) and 90 minutes (normal pace), the entrance is regulated and only 400 tourists a day can enter. There are two groups: one at 7 a.m. and the other one at 10 a.m., when entering the doorman will ask us to note our personal details in a notebook for security if something happens or you don’t want to go back.
At the beginning the path is surrounded by trees and the typical vegetation of the upper jungle, we get close to a wall of the Wayna Picchu mountain where we see steps that takes us to the top, these steps are a bit narrow but don’t worry; there are security ropes that helps us. When we are almost at the top of Wayna Picchu we might suffer a bit of vertigo. Once at the top we have an amazing view that makes us feel like we are almost up in the clouds. Up here we can see stone constructions made by the Incas.
