“Great Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

After completing the second pass early on Day 3 of the Inca Trail hike this set of ruins will come into view. It is incredible that this was built up on the side of the mountain at this location. A tour of the ruins is a must, but there is a climb of stairs off the trail to get up to it. As you progress through the valley and well past the site you will have occasions where the trail opens up and you will be able to look back across the valley and see it in the distance along with osme waterfalls. This is where a zoom lense for my camera would have been handy.

“WOW, WOW, WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2013

The only way to get here is on an official guided trek, normally to Machu Picchu. This former Inca fort / travellers rest place is an example of what the Spanish did to Inca settlements - an eye opener when compared to Machu Picchu which wasn't discovered. The settlement commands excellent views over the valley and is a must stop on the trek. There are lots to say - but I won't spoil your experience and the guide’s stories.

Booked this tour upon arrival and was not disappointed. Very close to Cusco, highly recommended however can be very cold and windy in the evening if visiting in August. Highly recommended

“Incredible Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2012

Along the Inca Trail, you come upon this incredible sight (kind of out there on it's own)...we had fun exploring this sight as there were hardly any other trekkers around when we were there!
