as I said, we didn't go close as access was quite difficult, so the guide told us the history of this site, and watched Uyo Uyo from a distance..
It's a great day hike to get here from town. No one is around!!!!! It is in varied states of repair and future repair you get to see up close the engineering of these amazing Inca's. In addition you are in the most beautiful area
We visited on a beautiful day in October with a guide. We saw one other pair of tourists and one wonderful group of school children from Arequipa. We had a wonderful time posing with the kids (I presume they hadn't encountered many El Nortes before). But other than that great encounter we had the ruins to ourselves and it was... More
We went with a small group staying at Killawasi Lodge. Our guide was a local woman who was ably helped by one of our group (german) who excellently translated for us with only English. Good site to take some time to wander about, fairly compact and we were pretty much the only people there - walk on to the hot... More
We did the walk from Yanque across the bridge and up the hill (about 1 hour each way). There is no extra charge for visiting the archeological site. When you're close by it is definitely worth going there. Beside the interesting ruins of Uyo Uyo it's simply a wonderful walk near the canyon. We saw many farmers cultivating their fields... More
The walk is pleasant and the views are great. We went first to the ruins and then to the hot springs in Yanque. Pleasant way to spend the afternoon.
We visited this site after a wonderful hike with a great guide Brian . He is a local schoolboy with excellent knowledge from the surroundings. He only speaks Spanish . The site is small but being restored. The views from the valley amazing. Nice hike for afternoon.
I had never heard of this site, until checking trip advisor once we were in Colca Lodge. We were given a fairly basic map from the hotel, but its not far to walk from the lodge, and we did ask some local farmers. Hiking in is the only way to get to it, which may put off some travellers, but... More
Worth the trip over, both for the visit to the site but also for the very enjoyable (moderate hike) across the river from Yanque and along the river through the working terraces and then finally into the stone stuctures. It is much bigger than I imagined. Nothing like Machu Picchu, Pisac or some othe better known sites but interesting. Best... More
the Uyo-Uyo ruins are a few minutes away from the Colca Lodge (5 min by car + additional 15 min hike). The hotel told us that when the guard is there we will be charged 5 soles but there wasn't anyone at the ruins when we arrived. You will see some cows and sheep along the way. There is a... More
