experiences and comments of tourists who have visited there :

The important thing to remember is that it’s a hike, not a walk. It's mostly a phyiscal endeavor, but a very rewarding one. There's a sense of achievement when you get to the top and you have a beautiful and different perspective of Machu Picchu. I arrived at Machu Picchu at 6:45 am, so I had no stamp to climb. My tour guide suggested we went straight to the Huayna Picchu door to see if I was lucky. And I was. It had rained the day before and that might have turned off some visitors as the trail gets slippery with rain. After 30 minutes in line, I signed my entrance at 8:05 am, I was number 140. You are surronded by nature and great views all the way to the top. At the peak it is crowded, so you have to wait your turn. Going up was not as easy as I thought it would be, but it was not as difficult as I read or was told by some. Just go at your own pace. Of course, if you are scared of heights or have trouble with narrow stairs, then this is not a good option for you. If you have the money, you should definitely consider staying at the Sanctuary Lodge to secure a place before the first bus from Aguascalientes arrives.
