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

This was a great hike. There were very few people around so you really felt like you were on an adventure. The views are beautiful and you really can't beat a free hike. A quick tip: If you are standing in the square with Pinkuylluna on your right walk up the little street next to the ATM, about half way... More

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
