Should I Climb Machu Picchu’s Huayna Picchu Mountain?

So I have been looking further into my trip to Peru in 2016, and I have read a lot of reviews online which highly recommend climbing Huayna Picchu while in Machu Picchu.

First thing to know, is that i’m not all that good with heights. In fact I would say I border quite close to being very much afraid of them.

But try as I might, I can’t get the thought out of my head. I think I really want to do this, just to prove to myself that yes, you can do it.

Some of the pictures floating about on other hikers blogs are just amazing.

I even found this two part video on YouTube, which shows the entire ascent and descent on video.

I have talked myself into it, I’m going to do it. Wish me luck!

If you have any comments or advice, i’m all ears 🙂
