Excellent view

Be prepared for a steep hike. Takes approximately an hour and half. Although the hike is somewhat challenging its definitely worth the view!

Figure out how to get there (it's through the residential area of town, and you can see the site on the side of the mountains opposite the Ollantaytambo Temple) and look for the little sign (it's small and a little hidden away so you might need a map to help you out). It's not easy to get up there -... More

A more difficult walk than Ollantaytambo being over largely rough gravel and a bit of large stepping and scrambling with hands occasionally. But worth it for alternative views of the main ruins as well as the granary itself.

Steep and rough, but rewarding. Very steep climb up to old Inca granaries located half-way up the mountains. See the entire valley from ruins well up the side of the mountain. Begin off the stone walkway heading uphill one block east of the central square.

Tipically you head to Ollantaytambo ruins and that's it, but this short trek on the opposite mountain side offers a view and you cannot get while walking within the ruins. The entrance is a bit hidden in a narrow street that starts close to the main plaza. It's watched by a guard at the top that will kick everyone out... More

We did this hike after lunch having done the temple/fortress in the morning. Its steep in places, wear good shoes/boots. Not many people trek up here so its great to have moments to yourselves and enjoy the view! Take plenty of water and a rain jacket as the weather can change rapidly. It was sunny AND spitting when we went... More

I found the granaries not very interesting, but the views of the town and the ruins are well worth the hike. The top of the mountain is closed now though, so you can only see the granaries and the other ruins that are a bit lower

Steep but excellent hike with a great view of the town. And it's free! Not many people on the path, no cables, no guard rails—which all made it a grand adventure :) Please wear good shoes!

This is one of the free ruins in sacred valley. This ruin is open from 6 am to 6 pm for free. From this ruin we could see the main ruins across the village. The inca storage ruins (colca) were in great shape and showed great in a architecture. I hiked up every morning during my stay here and was... More

great way to see something without spending any extra cash. there is no entrance fee and the path is a bit sketchy in places. for me this just means i got the whole place to myself and had the sort of adventure that i wanted! go out and enjoy yourself!
