Which group for MP-HP is better?

We are planning to clime up to HP on May 22.

There are two groups to choose in the official ticket site. One is 7-8AM, the other 10-11AM.

We would like to take good photos up there. Which one is a better choice in terms of weather, light, and crowds.

Thanks!

definitely at 10.00 am, both times will be crowd unless you are the first one at 7.00 am and run up so you are the first one, but light might be better, weather is better, i would say 10 but lets heard what others say too..

You have more chance of clouds over MP if you head up HP at 7am.

I agree with taking the later time, if there is going to be fog, it will be in the morning.

10am when my group went in November. It was really cloudy or foggy even when they started to climb up. The group that went ahead were disappointed by the view.

Now that the HP ticket is part of the MP purchase, is it still possible to purchase the ticket on the day we are there, as we have not decided whether to do the walk?

You have to buy tickets ahead of time either way, as you can't buy them at MP, and they limit entrance to MP as well as HP (but 2500 for MP, so it doesn't sell out as soon, or as often).

Our MP ticket has been purchased by the operator as part of the short inca trail hike. Can we purchase separate tickets for HP? Where/how?

Judy: you can't purchase a seperate ticket for HP. You have to get another MP+HP ticket.

In May it should not be so cloudy. 7am you will have better light, providing it is not cloudy. Also it will be cooler for the walk up.
