Ollantayambo Park is at the beginning of the Inca Trail, on the way to Machu Pichu. From the town, of the same name, you walk up several hundred steps passing wide terraces that the Incas used for raising food and more narrow terraces that grew flowers. At the top is the Temple of the Sun, and incredible views of the... More

It only took a few hours to explore this park after arriving in Ollantaytambo. We visited the day before our Inca Trail trek. Very short walk to most of the hotels, and restaurants in the city. Definitely a must see.

I recently returned from a solo trip to Peru for one week and had the honor of being shown El Valle Sagrado by Miguel, a private tour guide. He was punctual, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Peru and all of the sites we were visiting, particularly Ollantaytambo. As we toured the archaeological park of Ollantaytambo, I learned... More

The second stop on our Sacred Valley tour really put into perspective what the Incan people were capable of in terms of stone construction and farming. A fairly easy climb that provides a vast overlook of the valley and the town of Ollantaytambo with several points of interest along the way and once you get to the top.... terraces, military...

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

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
