The Gate to the Sun, or IntiPunku, is the fascinating entrance to Machu Picchu from the Inca Trail. From here, you can appreciate Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu.
According to historians, this entrance was used as a gate to control the number of people entering the citadel. During solstice, on December 23, the sun comes through this door and illuminates each ancient stone, allowing travelers to feel inspired, contemplate and meditate.
We recommend booking tours 30 days in advance in order to avoid inconveniences for the high season.
