This is a self-directed hiking opportunity to see the Inca granaries ruins on the hillside overlooking Ollantaytambo. There are no interpretive markers of any kind. Apparently there is a keeper that is stationed higher up to assure that the guests leave when the informal park...More

I did this short walk on my own while my other half rested a sore knee. It was not as challenging as it appears looking up from the town square; as others have said, it takes about 30 minutes with good fitness to reach the...More

This was a great hike to see some ruins, it's short and not too high but you get some great views of the valley. And it's FREE!

This is a good day hike if you are in Ollantaytambo. Takes about ~30 min to get up the Granaries - it is worth the hike. You and hike above the granaries for a wonderful, but the path is steep and narrow. Be sure to...More

Great place to catch the sunset, but be aware that it is supposed to close at 4 .30 pm. But that is not written in stone. Steep stone, not necessarily steps, with handrails is the way up. Worth it though. Grain stores are magnificent. Free...More

This is a really interesting place to visit in Ollantaytambo. The granary is located on the mountain side high above the town and it provides an excellent view of the surrounding area. Great place for photos but be aware it is not a cake walk...More
