You've heard of Machu Pichu this is one of those other under publicized Inca ruin it is low altitude really very cool to see without the crowds of the other ruin sites.

We took a taxi from Cusco to Ollanta and on the way, we stopped at a couple of places (Animal Sancuary, Pisac, Salt Mines, Moray, etc.). Pisac ruins were the perfect start of our day trip through the Sacred Valley. The views were spectaculous and to be honest, out of all things we saw that day, it was the best.... More

Pisac ruins are well worth a visit. They were the first Inca ruins I saw and I was and still am so pleased I visited. They are quite spread out so there can be many visitors there but it does not seem busy. The exception is if a coach load arrives, then the part close to the road will be... More

We lucked into a great guide (Ernesto) when he drove our party of six from the Cusco airport to our train to Machu Picchu, so we arranged for him to take us on a day trip to the Sacred Valley. One of our stops were these ruins. Ernesto shared lots of information about the locale, then left us on our... More

We left Cusco by local bus (U$1) to Pisaq for one hour trip. Great view. Stay in the left side of the bus. We left the bus on the entrance of the city. It is just five minutes walk to the city sunday market. We spent more than hour visiting the market. Clothes, souvenirs, scarfs are good products to buy,... More

Pisac are interesting ruins to visit if you are en route to Machu Picchu, though I didn't find them as interesting as Ollantaytambo.

We took a taxi to the top, toured the ruins and hiked down the steep steps to end up in the town square. Gorgeous vistas. Bring your rain gear in the rainy season. It's challenging, but worth it. Just take your time. You might even meet a charming 8 year old who wants you to hire him to direct you... More

The Pisac Inca ruins are worth visiting if you are in the area or in Cusco. They look very impressive. The location has a lot of steps and has some restrooms.There are some ramps but not in all the areas. I didn't make it to the tower but the views are spectacular. Great for pictures.

These are a very large site and requires some time to see it all. We did not have a guide and don't think we missed out on too much. There is quite a hike all the way around, thru a small tunnel (not scary) to see how vast the place is.
