Not only do you get to see impressive Incan farm Terraces and buildings, but you get to see amazing views of the scared valley. There is a lot of walking in these ruins so wear good shoes. The souvenirs here and so much cheaper than the prices in Cusco. Buy your souvenirs here!

Huge impressive site. Impressive terraces, remains of buildings. Great views. Bring a camera, sun hat, water and good shoes. The site was not busy and this allowed us to take in the sheer size of the sight and the accomplishments of the inca.

A good guide will help make this ancient city and agricultural area come alive. We used a private guide and Alpaca Expeditions (which I highly recommend). We hiked around the ruins and terraces for a few hours. I was surprised at the size of Pisac and really enjoyed learning about the Incan culture and uses of the site.

The most interesting thing to us at this site were the burial tombs that almost cover the hill side directly across from the main part of the site, it is really hard to imagine how the Inka actually constructed these with not much more than ropes and ladders. Another thing I found interesting were the holes in some of the... More

Machupicchu Picchu and the ruins right outside of Cusco seem to get all the glory, but the Pisac ruins are not to be missed! We went with a guide who was able to give us a great deal of information about each of the sites we visited that day. If you're planning to tour the Sacred Valley, arrange a private... More

Lots of school groups when we visited in October. Much of area intact. Great views from area as well. You can see where weather has taken a toll on the site so be careful where you walk.

This was a wonderful hike that allowed you to experience various levels of difficulty but with plenty of beautiful scenic areas to rest. You can spend all day or few hours and easily take hundreds of memorable photos.

We visited the Pisac ruins as part of a 1 day tour of the sacred valley which incorporated Pisac > Urambamba> Ollanytambo > Chincero. This cost 30 Sol and was booked through Naty's Travel agency. This was a good inexpensive option for visiting the sacred valley - both for convenience and also the addition of historical context added by the... More

Be sure to bring your hiking shoes and water. If you have some hiking poles, it wouldn't hurt to bring them along. Some of the trails are a little uneven, but overall this trek is well worth it. For the most part we had this trail to ourselves. The views were spectacular. We budgeted a few hours and saw much... More
