You can climb up that peak behind Machu Picchu, but be in shape. They only let 500 people climb that peak every day and only a certain amount of people can go at a time. It took us an hour to climb up and an hour to climb back down. You have to be 18+ and you can't be overweight or have any life-threatening medical conditions because there is absolutely no way of getting help to you if you are in trouble. There are just the thousand year old narrow stone stairs, steep drop, and a rope railing....it's a hard climb, especially when hot, so be careful...but the view is absolutely beautiful
