Mt. Putucusi Tours

Mt. Putucusi
Looming on the horizon to the east of Machu Picchu, the 2,500-meter peak of Mt. Putucusi makes an enticing proposition for those looking to venture off-the-beaten-track and escape the crowds. With its sheer forested slopes and near-vertical cliff faces, you’ll need to be in good fitness to scramble to the summit of Putucusi, but a series of rock steps and wooden ladders will help you along the way.

Hiking Mt. Putucusi takes around 3.5-hours round-trip, but it’s worth the effort, affording spectacular aerial views over neighboring Machu Picchu and Aguas Calientes. Best of all, it’s free from the crowds and entrance fees of Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu, so you can enjoy the views all by yourself.

Practical Info

Putucusi Mountain is located just northeast of Machu Picchu.
Address: Cusco, Peru
