After waiting in line for a little bit our turn finally came to enter the mountain. Once we signed in we started climbing up the steep Inca stairs leading to the summit. As we climbed higher and higher the ruins of Machu Picchu looked less and less familiar. The size of Huayna Picchu is pretty deceptive while hiking due to the dense vegetation but it towers over 1000ft above M.P. Along the way there are many steep drop offs and for people afraid of heights, like me, some areas were quite nerve-wracking.
