High Season in Machu Picchu
High season in Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu, Peru
The weather has been amazing the last few weeks and we have been so busy that we haven’t had time to post the latest news and information from Machu Picchu.
How to get a ticket to climb Huayna Picchu has been a frustrating process for everyone this year, and we are hoping that the Peruvian government makes some much needed changes to their website.
The website requires that your credit card be enrolled in the “Verified by Visa” program, but by many accounts that is a difficult process and an unnecessary step for most purchases, including international ones. In any event, until they change it here is our advice:
1. If you don’t need to climb Huayna Picchu, you should have no problem getting general admission ticket to Machu Picchu which includes nearly all of the rest of the entire park. It does not include:
2. The “Machu Picchu Mountain” hike entrance ticket. This does cost $8 also, like Huayna Picchu, but is much easier to get.
3. If not, there is plenty to climb around and see like the Sun Gate, and the Inca Bridge, neither of which require special admission.
