    do you have to use the Machu Picchu + Huayna Picchu ticket the same day. Would like not to do this on the same day. Do not see any tickets for just Huayna Picchu

    1. John

      There is no single ticket for Huayna Picchu, you have to buy both, or another thing you can do is buy a ticket for Machu Picchu and then the one that includes Huayna Picchu, and that way you can do it in 2 days.
