The short Inca trail plus Huaynapicchu mountain is a good option for lovers of Inca nature and culture. This trail runs through very sacred archeological sites, which were used exclusively by the Inca nobility. During the trip you will see
many orchids, birds, waterfalls and ruins of Inca temples. The level of the walk is moderate, so it is recommended for all types of travelers. The climate is tropical and does not go through high mountains.
The Huayna Picchu hiking is included as an optional plus for short inca trail tours Huaynapicchu mountain (the emblematic big mountain near Machupicchu)
At the very top of Huayna Picchu there is a rock shaped like a seat, called the “Throne of the Inca,” where you can admire the view over Machu Picchu. It generally takes hikers from 45 minutes to an hour to reach the summit.
