Allow one to two hours to climb the path to the moon temple. Just as hard coming down as going up but if you take your time anyone should be able to do it. It will be worth while so JUST DO IT!!

The incas loved the sun and the moon, so i was expecting already something to do with either one of the celestial stars. Really marvelous to learn so much about inca life in general and their beliefs.

The Moom Temple is another spot in Machu Picchu worth seeing. A guide is preferable as they can give insight into the many different rooms, temples, and details you wouldn't normally know unless you are an Inca history buff.

So many temples within Machu Picchu, all for different elements and so lovely. Great to have a guide explain them all.

Part of the ruins site at Machu Picchu. Well preserved (good resting spot also). Worth the trek, if physically able.

Ah, you'll have to ask your guide. Hope there is a good explanation. There is more to it that a possible worship of the moon.
