MMachu Picchu is one of the wonders of the modern world. It currently has different types of tickets which independently include different hiking route options. The Machu Picchu + Mountain ticket is the one that involves an ascent to one of the mountains that surrounds the Inca archaeological site. Next, we will be able to learn more about the route to the mountain and the route that is taken to see the incredible Inca citadel that touches the clouds.
Why choose this ticket?
This ticket is ideal if at any moment you want to visit Machu Picchu. It is one of the least known and therefore it is relatively easier to make a reservation with little time in advance. The Machu Picchu Mountain ticket plus the visit to the Inca archaeological site is also usually a pleasant option for those who want to do the Huayna Picchu tour, since the ascent to Machu Picchu mountain; the mountain that surrounds the entire archaeological site; It allows a less steep ascent than the visit to the Huayna Picchu mountain, but a longer one.
This is one of the positive and strongest points of this ticket. Ascending a mountain of more than 3000 meters above sea level is quite an adventure and, in addition, we will have a panoramic view of the entire archaeological site of Machu Picchu next to the Huayna Picchu and Huchuy Picchu mountains and at the same time, we will be able to see the entire river Urubamba that surrounds the slopes of both mountains.
After the aforementioned, we only have to mention that we will be at the highest point of the entire place. We will not get tired of saying that Machu Picchu mountain offers incredible views in total contact with nature. It is an ideal option for all public, the road is wide, safe and simple, although that is a bit long. The entrance to Machu Picchu with this ticket has three schedules which we will see later.
