Not the biggest or most impressive, but a great warm up to MP. Nice little town to stop over in. You could walk every street in this town twice and see the site all within one day. super cute, great vibe here. Good prices on their "souvenirs" compared to Cusco. Greatest part about this site is the view. Like many... More

A bit of a climb but it's worth it to see these interesting Inca ruins and have a great view of Ollantaytambo and the valley.

The first impression is misleading, there are a lot of stairs to climb, but when coming up gorgeous scenery and sun god temple is the most impressive in the region. It consists of huge stones that were taken from the mountain on the other side of the valley with the inclined plane and a lot of manpower. In conclusion, most... More

An historically significant and one of the most beautiful sites. we hiked to the top behind the ruins as well as entirely to the lower sites where water flows. Learn the history of this site before hand or from a guide.

Beautiful site and worth a visit. It's so impressive the amount of architecture that incas built into mountains. This particular site introduced me to inca earthquake shock absorbers...so impressive!!

Fantastic place. Get a guide it really is worth the money, they point out things you will not necessarily see. It's quite taxing, especially if you are not used to the altitude but take it slowly and it's worth it.

Be prepared for a climb, but this is one of those stupendous Inka ruins that rivals Machu Picchu. Ollantaytambo is extraordinary and it is fascinating to learn how (and why) it was built and how far the stones were hauled. Do not miss Ollantaytambo.

A very nice place to spend 2-3 hours at the place. It is a worthwhile (there are 3 routes) ascend up to the top with majestic views from there. Take a brochure and visit the temple of the sun, Temple of the water, water sources etc...there are many places where u could sit around, have a bite n drink while... More

Amazing stupendous, be prepared for big climb and walk. Huge surprise when you walk through the gate to see such a massive construction and see the detail in houses and water system. Also impressive to see structures on surrounding mountains and learn about inka trail. Llamas wandering around, lots of steps and walking, worth a few hours visit. Huge souvenir... More
