insanely terrifying and beautiful

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

This is good 30-minute round trip walk from the entrance of Machu Picchu. It is important to point out that this site is NOT in Ollantaytambo, meaning that this is miscategorized! There are some straight drop-offs from this Inca stone trail that can be a bit hair-raising, but the trail is plenty wide and you can lean against the mountain... More

The trail is well maintained, but watch your step because the trail is located in a mountainous relief. It's about 20-30 min walk in and out, if you have time is worth to see a different point of view of the sights.

Something special about the Inca Bridges - worth a diversion - by this time we were almost used to heights, steps and walking - as others attest, the Inca Empire was amazing in so many ways and ahead of their time.
