Absolutely worth the hike. Stunning view. A must-see!

It took us about 90-100 minutes from Auges Calientes to the entrance gates of Machu Picchu. We were there around 8:30-8:45. It did not takes us long to get in. After that we went straight up to Machu Picchu Mountain. This hike took us about two hours up and one hour down. You should be there early, because the Mountain closes quite early. So in order to spend some time on the mountain, enjoying the landscape, the views and taking some nice shots, you should be up there around 11 am. At the latest. The clouds move rapidly. Do not become desperate if Machu Picchu is covered in clouds for the first 30 minutes. Just be patient and wait. Enjoy the wind, the height and the view. It is absolutely worth it.

Great experience. The only room for improvement is that I didn’t realize tickets would be sent via separate app (WhatsApp) and hadn’t checked my account for those details. Was still able to get tickets printed at main office in Machu Picchu Pueblo, but was a bit confused about the process.

Breathtaking Experience

Walking through the Machu Picchu ruins and hiking on Machu Picchu Mountain was one of the most tiring, but worthwhile experiences I think I will ever have. I organized this trip myself and had to do lots of research on how to get to the site, what I needed to bring, how to get a guide when I got up to the ruins. There is lots of logistics, so I suggest you research your trip before going, but it is definitely worth your money.
