Huayna Picchu is located behind the Machu Picchu Mountain so there you can take a top view of the Inca Citadel. There is a control post in Machu Picchu. In order to ascend to Huayna Picchu you should sign in your name and you will receive a ticket to ascend to the Huayna Picchu. The guide will direct you on how to get the ticket, but you do not need to pay anything extra. Only 400 people per day, divided in two groups are allowed to visit it. Machu Picchu receives more than 1000 visitors a day and generally they do not get a quota to ascend to the Huayna Picchu. In general, the visitors that come from other roads get quotas because they arrive to Machu Picchu earlier. In order to get a better experience it is better to wake up early and see the sunrise.
