It's also a place that you have to "climb" to reach, with a good view of the Copacabana bay. It's charges you in 10bs and the attraction itself, the "Horca del Inca"it's just rocks over rocks. Go if you have time, otherwise prefer to go to El Calvario.

The "Horca" is misnamed, because it's an astronomical site. You hike up on a trail that was partly carved into the natural rock. There are several bizarre shaped rocks, the Horca itself consists of 2 natural flat rocks topped with a carved block. A hole in the right hand rock allows the observation of the sunrise on June 21st, the... More

Our whole trip to Lake Titicaca was magical and the Islands of the Sun and Moon were just mesmerising. I couldn't believe we were actually there and in parts it felt like we were on an ocean. They had just had some political uprest in Bolivia but we managed to get through to Copacabana, it was very quiet which was... More

Go before you visit the cathedral (where they bless cars with flowers and alcohol every morning). Or go at sunset. Despite the graffiti, the top is weird and interesting collections of rocks and Inca observatory carvings.

Horca del Inca was unexciting, Not worth the 10B or the climb. Instad go up the Calvario at sunset and enjoy the view.

This is a good hike if visiting Copacabana because it allows you to see the city and the lake. As other reviewers mentioned you as a foreigner have to pay a small girl (who does her homework in the meantime) to enter. Once you pass her it is all stairs, a steep climb which seems as if it had no... More

This is a great place to see all of the Copacabana area from. First you have to pay a small child 5 bolivianos each to get a ticket to go up, then you hike for what seems like hours (altitude gets you). It is actually about 25 minutes and it is totally worth it. There is a nothing up there... More
