We did this hike in the early afternoon and we had a blast. I would give it a moderate difficulty rating, mostly because the path is rough at times (rocky and steep) and also because we were not totally acclimated to the altitude yet. It was a relatively short hike but so rewarding at the top (and all along the... More

We did this moderately strenuous uphill hike as "practice" for what turned out to be even more difficult hiking later that same week. The views of the village and the fortress are spectacular, and there is no admission fee for this attraction. Overall, very much worth seeing.

This site is worth the walk; it is free, off the beaten path, and you have a nice view of the city, from the other site of the temple.

The start was just outside the door of your hotel, so made for and easy quick trip up the hill. Had to marvel at the construction and the hike the Incas made to get up the hill.

It was our first taste of Incan ruins, so if you've been to Sacsayhuayman and Macchu Picchu already, it may not be worth it for the ruins alone, but the views from up on the hill are wonderful. You get a look down on the whole town, as well as a view back into the Sacred Valley and a great... More

I saw these ruins from the town but didn't initially see anyone climbing up there so decided they must be completely abandoned. After spending the morning at the main Ollantaytambo ruins I had a few hours to kill before heading to the train station. I looked up and saw a few people making their way up the hillside and decided... More

Since the ollytaytambo sight is almost 40$us to get in i thought this would be better. It was very difficult to find as the entrance is down an alley with no signs except one small one. I can't comment to much as I only made it up half way. But the views are great. And it seems it's higher then... More

we only saw this from many vantage points in the village and also from our hike up the main ruins. would have tried the climb if we had more time... Apu Pinkuylluna houses the granaries.... The likeness of Viracocha - the creator god - is carved into the sacred mountain. Legend has it that after Viracocha appeared on earth, he... More

This is a somewhat-overlooked sight though it is in plain sight. There's no grand entrance. Just a very rough stairway up from the gate of the local custodian. There's a few parts of the granary, and the paths are not well-signed and take some guessing to get around. Go up there in the morning for a sunrise view of the... More

I only managed to get half way up the mountain not due to exhaustion but the steep uneven path.The first half of the journey is mostly steps/ stone paths which are uneven in places but manageable.After the halfway point you are scrambling up steep rocks not even a proper path- it was too much for me.The views however halfway up...
