Machu Picchu’s Extra Hikes

Huayna, Huchuy or Montaña?

Map of Inka Bridge and Machu Picchu Mountain

There have long been two extra hikes that a person can do after visiting the main ruins of Machu Picchu: Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu Mountain (often called Montaña).

These are extra options that you can add to your tour of the main part of the ruins, called the llaqta on the website where you buy tickets. (Llaqta means town in Quechua and it’s not translate to Spanish or English on the website).

There are two new options for Machu Picchu visitors: Huchuy Picchu and the Inka Bridge. Neither is actually new, but the requirement to choose them as an option when you buy your Machu Picchu ticket is new.
