A better hike than the main ruins

I arrived in Ollantaytambo with the plan to tour the main ruins. We had the full ticket (Boleto Turistico) already and that got us in to those ruins. We went in the afternoon... read more

I arrived in Ollantaytambo with the plan to tour the main ruins. We had the full ticket (Boleto Turistico) already and that got us in to those ruins. We went in the afternoon and it was SWARMING with people. It was like the NYC subway during rush hour. We had a guide and it was interesting. We looked across the... More

For most people in Ollanta, the main draw will be the Inca site on the other side of town. We watched this from our room at Hotel Sol, and watched it get packed with coach loads of tour groups from mid-morning. Pinkyulluna by contrast is almost deserted, and it's free! Sure, there are no tour guides. But there's no people,... More

We only had an afternoon in an Ollantaytambo and decided to visit these ruins as the main Ollantaytambo ruins were very crowded and required a ticket to all the Sacred Valley sites (we only had time to visit one, so didn’t want to pay for a full ticket). These ruins were free, practically empty (we might have come across half... More

This is a great hiking option if you have at least a full day in Ollantaytambo. You can see the traditional ruins in the morning and then head to Pinkuylluna in the afternoon. It's a steep hike, but really rewarding. Beautiful views of the town and of Ollantaytambo ruins, which are on the other side.

A free site that you'll probably have to yourself. Not too popular, but with great views of Ollantaytambo and the major Inca ruins behind it.

It's really worth of climbing. You can stay on the mountain 2-3hours and have very good view on temple of ollantaytambo. If you want to see sunrise you have to climb at 7.30 and take warm cloth (July).

I really like to see Ollantaytambo's town from up there because it has another perspective. What is hard is to climb up

Our family truly enjoyed this hike. It offered incredible views of the adjacent ruins and of the town of Ollantaytambo. The price was right (free), and quiet. Loved it.

This site is free (my favorite price), but not full of tourists. Most people visit the Sacred Valley on a day trip, but we rented a house so that we could explore at leisure. On a day trip, you will not visit this site - you'll go to the main site instead. The hike is steep but the views are... More
