Enjoyable part of a walk through countryside to see how Inca lived in smaller partially restored settlement. Would not go as a destination in itself. Saw 'colcas' / Inca food storage sites by the river

The hike is not steep at all - it's actually a nice walk. It took us around 1,5 hours. I do not recall rocky paths.
