The Archaeological Park is worth the visit, bring comfortable shoes for climbing the large steps. The park does get crowded by the plethora of tour groups so an early visit is recommended. It is unfortunate that they only offer combo passes to a minimum of four sites in different towns, you can't just buy a pass to this park. The... More

The view is stunning from the terraces or the top at the temple of the sun. How the Incans built this defies logic as the granite blocks are truly huge and stacked one atop another with no mortar.

Ollantaytambo is a collosal site, and organic part of the history. I highly recommend it not just because it is as impressive as MP. We can also have a coherent view, linking common elements that may be lost when visiting archeological sites separately. The construction started by the order of Pachacuti, like MP. It was a ceremonial site above the... More

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.
