Part of our tour around the Sacred Valley, unfortunately the weather closed in and we got soaked. However this didn't take away the splendour of this ruin. The views over the surrounding valleys from the top are breath taking, even more so when you see the rain clouds heading your way!! We took shelter with the local workers in one... More

It's a pleasant and easy walk, because the gradient is only very slight, and much of the walk is in the shade, which is a blessing on a hot day with the sun beating down on you. It's also safe in that the path is adequately wide, but anyone suffering vertigo might not be too impressed as the views down... More

Please spare me the trouble of walking across a regular bridge. Yes the foundations are there are Inca but that is as far as it goes. Don't bother, boring!

Not for the faint of heart or knee, some difficult steep "steps" to navigate. Much harder going down. The bridge access is narrow, scary to some of us, worth doing!

we went across the bridge around 5 pm and were entertained by numerous hummingbirds who were having their last feed of nectar from the flowers on the Inca terraces

The bridge is interesting in that it may use the foundations and piers of an original Incan bridge but the bridge deck itself has been modified to hold light and not-so-light vehicles. No rope bridge.

This is a review of the Inca Bridge in Ollantaytambo (Puente Inka), not in Machu Pichhu (that one has it's own TA entry). Start at the main square (Plaza Mayor) then walk down the road to the Alameda cien ventana (the road of 100 niches) and the Punku Punku - an original Inka gate very much intact. Then walk down...

The Inca Bridge is an amazing site. It's not a long hike, but as everything else at Machu Picchu, it's all up hill. The bridge is an excellent photo op.

At Ollantaytambo--We walked to the Inca bridge at Ollantaytamo and it was wooden bridge over Urubamba river. Nothing special, we were just walking around town and exploring. At Machu Picchu--There is a trail called Inca Bridge--it is no where near the Sun Gate as some else mentioned. But closer to the thatched Guardians Hut near the center of MP. The... More

You must sign in before going on the trail and sign out when you leave. When Steve did this in the afternoon, after climbing to the Sun Gate he was the 250th person. It is a 20-30 minute hike from the sign in area. The bridge can be seen from a distance... no one is allowed to cross it. The... More
