    Travel to Huaynapicchu History of the New Mountain

    Better known by travelers with excursions to the Huaynapicchu mountain, Wayna Pikchuen Quechua, (with an altitude of 2667msnm) is part of the eastern foothills of the Salcantay massif, in Cusco, Peru. It is part of a large orographic formation known as the Vilcabamba Batholith, in the Central Cordillera of the Peruvian Andes and is mainly known for being the backdrop for most panoramic photographs of the Inca archaeological remains of Machu Picchu. However, it also houses important Inca archaeological remains related to the famous Inca complex of Huayna Picchu.

    In order to avoid confusion, it must be taken into account that Machu Picchu in Quechua means “Old Mountain”, while Huaynapicchu means “Young Mountain”, so it is an analogy between the old man and the young man. Thus, Huayna Picchu is the smallest mountain and the largest mountain is Machu Picchu, which gives its name to the valley and the Inka citadel (In the typical photos you do not see the Machu Picchu mountain, only the Huayna Picchu mountain, leaving Machu Picchu behind the photo).

    The Huayna Picchu mountain has a very steep and narrow path, which includes several sections with steps, stairways carved into the living rock and cables. The ascent varies between 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the physical condition of each person who visits the Inca mountain of HuaynaPicchu “Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu” Cusco – Peru Operator.

    Site and Location of Machu Picchu – Cusco – Peru:

    The Urubamba River meanders and forms a sharp bend as it reaches the Machu Picchu hill. This and the Huayna (young) Picchu (hill) form a “C”, facing the Putucusi and Sachapata hills. These mountains, which form abrupt abysses, are surrounded by mountain ranges of the sacred valley that form both a majestic landscape and an insurmountable barrier. The natural beauty of such a setting, together with the religious properties that the Incas conferred on it, impressed Pachacuti, the architect monarch of the Inka empire, who ordered the construction of the urban complex of Machu Picchu here, in a very difficult location.

    Historical Review of Machupicchu to travel:

    The integration of the Tawantinsuyu peoples began with the government of Pachacuti Inca Yupanqui. In Machupicchu, the need arises to establish a center of articulation between the Amazonian and High Andean space, thus establishing the Administrative, Political and Religious Center, with a strategic location and urban planning, where spaces such as the Ceremonial Plaza, religious precincts are combined. : Temple of the Sun, Temple of the Condor, astronomical observatories, residence of the Inka, workshops and qolcas; a system of agricultural terraces. In the construction of main spaces, imperial Inka architecture predominates, with a network of roads leading to all directions of its surroundings, highlighting the ritual paths of the Machupicchu and Huaynapicchu mountains. Between 1539-1912, the Piccho encomienda was established, assigned to Hernando Pizarro, later to Captain Diego Arias Maldonado on his trips. In 1572, 52 indigenous people from the parishes of Cusco moved to create the City of San Francisco de Victoria de Vilcabamba, to whom lands of “Intiguatana, Guaynapicchu” were distributed.

    Colonial information points to the current “Inka City of Machupicchu” as “Seat of the Incas” and “The Ancient Town of the Inga Named Guaynapicchu”. The habilitation of the road from Piri to the Santa Ana Valley was carried out in 1872 at the request of the Peruvian state, which hired the Engineer Hernán Gohering, who carried out studies and elaborated the topographic and geological map of the area. Starting in 1872, Don Augusto R. Berns, commissioned by Casa Forga, exploited the wood to make sleepers for the laying of rails from Arequipa to Cusco, later celebrating the “Huaca de Inca Company”.

    The Conservation of archaeological objects and sites by the Peruvian state, were a priority for science and Natural History. In 1911, Dr. Hiram Bingham arrived – Peru Travel, commissioner of Yale University and the National Geographic Society of the United States of North America; the following year he carried out the explorations and excavations of each trip, reaching the conclusion that Machupicchu was the last capital of the Inkas. The Archaeological Board of Cusco, in 1934-1974 Peru Travel, undertakes conservation in the Inka City of Machupicchu, maintaining that it had a magical religious character. Later, it is argued that Machupicchu was built by Pachacuti on the way to the headwaters of the jungle towards Chinchaysuyu.

    The National Institute of Culture -Cusco – Peru, carries out archaeological research, suggesting a similarity between the Inka design of Cusco and Machu Picchu. Since 1983, Machupicchu is a Cultural and Natural Heritage of Humanity. The Ministry of Culture has been developing comprehensive and interdisciplinary research with international cooperation, deducing that Machu Picchu is a Political and Religious Administrative Center.
