We should have grabbed a guide from the bottom (cheap and certified) but the climb was enjoyable nevertheless. Maybe 2 hours round trip....great ruins and an awesome view of Ollanta!

The trudge is worth the views. Of course, in its current state of ruin, you would have to imagine what it would have looked like in its heydays, but the location and views are enough to dispel such thoughts...

These ruins aren't as popular with the tourists as the main ruins in the city, which makes them quite special!

An easy 1hr15min hike up and down to get a good view of Ollanta from above and also a view of the Temple of Ollantaytambo on the other side of the valley. Bring water. You can enter the trail right from one of the Ollanta streets, it is marked with a sign saying "Pinkuylluna" with an arrow. Once on the... More

One of my favorite things to do on vacation is take a hike somewhere where every time you catch your breath you get to look at something neat. In this regard, Pinkylluna completely fit the bill: scrambling over rocks to an Incan ruin, all while gazing out over the town and ruins of Ollantaytambo, you'd be hard-pressed to find a... More

We clambered up to this area after visiting the Temple on the other side of the valley, just to get a different perspective on the ruins. IT isn't easy to find the start of the path and, in parts, the climb is very loose and steep Take your time and climb with care - good shoes or boots recommended and... More

Hike up and enjoy the view and the ruins - it takes about 2 hours round trip if you are reasonably fit. No crowds and a great view of the town and the ruins on the opposite mountain.

But worth it for the views. Took a few hours to get to the top but the views of the city were amazing.

This hike, which can take anywhere from one hour to three hours, is a great free hike located right in Ollanta. It's steep, which makes the hike upwards tiring, but personally, the hike down is easy and a breeze. As someone living in Ollanta for a few months, it's great to have this area accessible for exercise, a beautiful view,... More
