Ollantaytambo is a beautiful town with breathtaking ruins. It's difficult to describe in words how great it is. I spent 2 nights here before taking the train up to Machu Pichu. The ruins are absolutely beautiful, worth exploring for a fun afternoon. But you could easily spend a few days here exploring this fun little town. This place is a... More

This place has an interesting story, and an excellent view when you have climbed the track up to the top. Worth spending the time

Yet another stunning feat by the Inkan civilization. A relatively easy climb to the top with impressive views of the the town and valley below. Wonderful photo opportunities along the upper reaches of the site as well. We didn't bother with a guide as we were a little short on time and wanted to go at our own pace. Highly... More

This place is a must see destination. It sits at the end of the valley and each time you climb a level the view is spectacular. Another amazing feat of engineering by the Incas. You can see the old grain stores perched on the other side of the valley and the more you concentrate, the more buildings you can see.... More

I hear a lot of people skip this site on their trip to Machu Picchu, don't miss this. Workout your itinerary to include ollantaytambo . We stayed in this small town which we were very happy we did. Hiking up this site is not that difficult. It is a fairly big site but small in comparison to MP. We spent... More

Not to be missed along with a visit to Machu Picchu for a more thorough understanding of Inca civilization.

The ruins of this valuable agricultural center for the Inca are always worth exploring, even if you have been a hundred times! I always find something new there that I missed exploring last time. The storehouses differ in size and shape from storehouses found south of Cuzco. The examples of large mined stones for building that never quite made it... More

After paying our admission, we were able to walk around the site and see the temple of the sun at the peak. You can walk throughout the site, though it is important to note you are at a high altitude and the steps are very high in some cases. We walked around the lower reaches and out to the ends... More

This was our final stop as part of a full day Sacred Valley private tour and wow, they saved the best for last. Be prepared to climb many steps on the way up and you'll feel winded due to the elevation but the history and views are worth the effort. I'd recommend Condor Travel who can take you to each...

After visiting Pisaq earlier in the day, wasn't expecting such an interesting Inca ruin. There are a lot of steps, so be prepared to do a fair bit of walking.
