Tipon really shows you how the Incans were able to move significant amounts of water in order to farm the land. While not on the standard list of Incan ruins (i.e., Machu Picchu, etc) to visit, the two hour visit was one of the highlights of our trip.

This place is way up in the hills outside of Cusco. It is in my opinion one of the prettiest sights of an old Inka ruin set in an amazing mountain Valley. The walk is fairly easy with an additional path to a higher ruin overlooking this one, Which I would recommend. The place is getting to be a favorite... More

Tipton was quite beautiful and just a sight to see for sure! It was like stairs but made out of grass and nature! Just beautiful is all I can really say about this place and well worth a visit!

It was our last day and we'd seen so much - but a few of us thought this just might have been our favorite location! A waterworks well before it's time - a lovely site and really interesting site where water was managed for crops and overall living. Beautiful place on a sunny day, lots of birds also in the...

I can only review what can be seen from the parking lot since the guards would not let us in. The guide books say it is open until 5:30 but the guards won't let anyone in after 4:30 pm. They can't leave until the last person gets out so they are not thrilled to let you in late. The drive... More

Tipon is an Incan agricultural site with an ingenious irrigation system. It's a pleasant and interesting place to spend an hour or two, walking around and through the various levels. And there were fewer tourists here than in other sites.

Another good option is visit the south valley of Cusco, also is a a good alternative visit the Sacred Valley, these two valleys contain the best landscapes you can find in Cusco, too much culture and delicious food, without no doubt not to be missed, and even if they already have reliable agency as it is xtreme, even better.

Took a Bus for 1.50 Soles from the center of Cusco. The hike through Inka Way was amazing with spectacular view from the height. If you can't find the way to reach the top the locals would be happy to assist you.

Similar to Moray but based on a square design rather than curves. The stonework is in very good condition and the distribution of water throughout the site adds to its attractiveness. Great views of the surrounding area from the Inca site
