A Day In Machu Picchu... And Hiking The Impressive Huayna Picchu Mountain, Peru (1)

After arriving to Machupicchu village the day before heading up to Machu Picchu, we were told that to get into Machu Picchu for 6am – which would leave enough time for us to explore the citadel for a little bit before starting our hike up Huayna Picchu (our time slot was 7am for this) – we would have to be at the bus stop an hour earlier i.e. at 5am. (*FYI, it was either the bus or do a 2 hour uphill hike. In high altitude and at that time of the morning? No, thank you!)

I moaned about this until we were told later on that we should probably arrive at least two hours earlier as the queues would be quite long.

“At 4am? Impossible!” I thought. Boy was I wrong.

We arrived at 4am (in the pouring rain – like seriously, I’ve not experienced rain this heavy in a long long time) and the queue already stretched further than we could see. It took just under 2 hours before finally heading off in search of this amazing ancient Inca city!

This is also probably one of the videos I was most excited about sharing with you so please do let us know what you think!!! 🙂
