WHAT IT IS THE MACHUPICCHU MOUNTAIN?
It is a question that many visitors who plan to come to Peru ask themselves, and the question is with good reason why comes to mind, since not having the necessary explanation, the ascent to the Machupicchu Mountain is confused with the visit to the Inca Citadel.
The Machu Picchu Mountain is one of the highest peaks close to the Inca citadel, today there is an alternative option to climb to the top, the hiking time lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes for those in good health and physical condition.
The reason of ascending to the top is to be able to have a wonderful view of the entire Machupicchu Archaeological Center, as well as the Machupicchu Canyon, the angle of view from the top is opposite to that from the top of the Huaynapicchu Mountain, many people take this route as an alternative option since they can not get the ticket for the Huaynapicchu mountain.
If you want to climb this mountain, you must first see if there are available spots, since as being a narrow route, the number of rooms is limited, we highly recommend to book in advance.
Regarding the price, it is not a considerable charge, it is an addition of 20.00 US dollars to the price of the entrance ticket for the Citadel of Machupicchu, for example, if the entrance ticket to Machupicchu costs 45.00 usd and you want to go to Machupicchu Mountain, the price of the ticket including the mountain will be 65.00 usd.
Check the prices with more than one agency, so you can compare each other, or you can also book yourself through the main and official portal, machupicchu.gob.pe.
