Try and climb them both

Not for the faint hearted, but I would recommend trying to climb both, you will see spectacular views and appreciate just how steep it is set

Just seeing the Ruins is fairly quick, although they are quite interesting and very pretty. If you're going to go to the "Mirador" viewing area, apply sunscreen generously before heading up. The guard says it's only about 1km away, less than half an hour to get there. Granted, I may not be in the best shape, but it took closer... More

It takes 10 minuets to climb on the hill. On the top you can see San Pedro river. It is a simple trip. If you plan to be some days... More

We rented a bike in San Pedro and headed to Pukara de Quitor. It's a 10 minutes bike ride. You have to pay the park entry fees (3000$cl). There is 2 differents paths. The first one is a 20 minutes walk up the hill to see some archeological ruins. The second walk is to access the Mirador. The view is... More

The ruins are a good attraction of the place, but the climax of this tour is to follow the walking trail to the top of the hill, from where you have a spectacular view of the region, including the Licancabur volcano.

We took a short bike ride 3km and scaled quito ruins to the lookout. Although it was enjoyable there are plenty of better things to do in san pedro I believe than visit the quitor ruins.

It's worth it! You can go by bike or walking. Good place for a trekking, go to the higher hill, takes a little longer and effort, but the view is amazing!

I didn't really know what to expect at Pukara de Quitor, but it was great! The hike at the viewpoint might have been even better than the ruins! We were a bit pressed for time, so the site manager advised us not to do the walk around the ruins, but begin the hike to the viewpoint directly, as you still... More

Take a bike to visit this awesome place and go to see the Petroglifos 1 hour directly in the same road. You will find an amazing place and have fun climbing the rocks to see the signs inside the cave.
