Short but intense uphill climb. At the top, the views are amazing! Warming, guards will stop your climb by 1600, so go early!

When I first went to Ollanta I realized that was some ruins right up in the cliff of a mountain which surrounded the city and I was curious about to get in there. So, when I came back to spend the night I tried to...More

You climb quickly out of the town and onto the steep hillside - the views are wonderful. This is a free site, so the footpaths are a title rough in places. And the question is always - Why? What was this for? Lots of theories,...More

Walked up here on second day in Ollantaytambo. Nice to sit up here and relax. Buildings are not as impressive as the main fortress ruins, but views are gorgeous. Hike is short but steep. Suggest going up to granaries (steep), then going down less steep...More

Visiting the Granaries is another must when visiting Ollantaytambo. We were staying at the Apu Lodge. The entrance is just down from the lodge so look for the sign on the walkway. It is a good climb uphill, a little steep so take your time....More

This often overlooked hike offered great views of the ruins and the city. We were warned it was very steep but wooden railings make it much easier. Highly recommend!

We hike here very early in the morning. The route is steep up and down and somewhat uneven but not difficult for in shape sixty year olds, not fully acclimatized to the altitude. The view across the town to the ruins is worth every step....More

The entrance is very inconspicuous and off the beaten path, but we did this one afternoon before we left Ollantaytambo because we didn't want to venture too far from the town. Its a bit of a strenuous hike, but the views from the top are...More

Access to Pinkuylluna is down one of the cobble alleys off of the main square. This is a great hike with amazing views of Ollantaytambo

Not an easy climb in areas but should be doable for most. Wear good sturdy shoes and if you're afraid of heights you may want to only attempt the lower part of the trail. It's a free trail, although not easy to find the entry...More

Cusco is at a significantly higher altitude than Ollanta and Machu Picchu. Unless you're traveling from altitude or know you won't have any problems, you should consider staying at lower elevations toward the beginning of... More
