Machu Picchu – Entrance to Wayna Picchu

Wayna Picchu (“young peak”) rises over Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas. The Incas built a trail up the side of the Wayna Picchu and built temples and terraces on its top. The peak of Wayna Picchu is about 8,920 ft. above sea level, or about 1,180 ft. higher than Machu Picchu. A steep and at times exposed climb leads to the summit. Some portions are slippery and steel cables provide some support during the normal one-hour climb.
