After the short trek, we made it to the ruins and it was pretty cool. Some houses were untouched and some were refurbished. Its about the ONLY thing to do while at colca lodge. I would recommend so you don't waste away your time at the lodge.

My boyfriend and made a trek to these ruins with a guide provided by the Kilawasi Lodge, as we were staying there. I would recommend visiting. It is well worth the s / 5 per person. The signs explaining the site are in Spanish.

We were looking for some good trail descriptions/directions from Yanque to the ruins and the thermal baths. Couldn't find them, so here are our notes for the next traveler/hiker; we found the first path on Google maps. Take Avenue San Antonio from the main plaza toward the river. After about .2 km, bear right to stay on the main road.... More

You can walk there from Colca Lodge. It is uphill all the way so take your time and bring water. Quite remote ruins, worth visiting.
