This is one of the parts of the ancient city that your tour guide will take up to and completely explain. All is very impressive.

The hike to the place is about 45 mins and quite easy compared to others not steep. The views along the hike is incredible. The view of Machu Picchu is just great! A really treat to your eyes. They close at 4am.

Nice walk from Machu Picchu, it will take you 2 hours roundtrip but some 30 minutes will be needed to stay there and enjoy the lovely inca walls and landscape.

The Moom Temple is another spot in Machu Picchu worth seeing. A guide is preferable as they can give insight into the many different rooms, temples, and details you wouldn't normally know unless you are an Inca history buff.

So many temples within Machu Picchu, all for different elements and so lovely. Great to have a guide explain them all.
