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.

Stay to the left wall when walking to the bridge, especially if the fog socks you in. Go, even when foggy, because it usually lifts for 30 minutes, then socks back in. Beautiful views of the mountains. Crazy bridge that you can only see. I can't imagine anyone every walking on that thing. Be careful when wet because the rocks... More

Very peaceful walking out here at an off-hour so no other tourists about. Perhaps not a great place to go for people with disabilities, as most inca ruins unfortunately are

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

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...
