Inside the ruins of Ollantaytambo, impressive!

This is near the 10 niches when you climb up to the top of the temple at Ollantay. A guide will explain how it was made and the significance. Really interesting!

Likely not worth the drive all the way out of town. This is mostly the base of the bridge which is in view.

This is an excellent trail to take after you get bored with Machu Picchu. Although, how anyone could get bored with such a magnificent fortress I don't know. It is impressive to see how the Incas protected themselves with such simple methods as a removable bridge. The stonework walls along the mountainside is awesome. Not sure how many had to... More

we were walking all around this region and can recommend it for others to visit, it is completely funny, exhausting and educational and one finds himself agape, with wide-open mouths when thinking how the inkas crossed the 250+ tons granite boulders to the other side of the river...it must have been a really enormous task to do it without modern...

The original base is there but the bridge itself has been replaced. The walk through town to get here was more interesting as you get to see where the locals live.

We wanted a short excursion and the person at the tourist office recommended the 15 min walk. We went twice in the wrong direction, asked 5 locals and 3 of them had no idea about what we were talking about. We finally made it to the outskirt of town by the rail road and the bridge but had no clue... More

It is intresting site and worthwhile the hike/climb but only for who are in good shape.For some it may be difficult to go up and come back. The day I went the weather was not that great so it made it more dificult but for me it was worth going. Recomend it foe healthy people.

This stop was the first of many in our tour of Peru. From the town your first view is of Temple Hill with a series of terraces that go to the top. While much of the Sun Temple was destroyed, there are remnants of some original structures including some monoliths. Across the valley you can see the storehouses for food.
