Tipon - inca hydraulics
Oct 2021
Beautiful Inca sources, in this place you will have a clear idea of the Inca hydraulic management, according to the guide here cleansing and purification ceremonies were carried out with water.

Inca hydraulics and engineering.
Aug 2019
Fabulous place, with a great variety of altitudinal floors, platforms, where the Inca hydraulic design for irrigation is appreciated.
If you go early you can find the place completely clear and get impressive photos.
Is a tip !!!

I like this part of the trip because I couldn't see an architecture like this in another place in Cusco.
The Incas really worshiped water.

Another fascinating Inca experience!

Another fascinating Inca experience! We were able to spend more than a week exploring the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Not everyone has that amount of time and simply into Cusco and rushed off to Machu Picchu for the day, if you are part of that group do explore every archaeological site of the periphery of Cusco including Tipton.

This place was amazing. We were able to see and have explained how farming was done by the ancients and current day farmers.

I loved these ruins as an impressive irrigation system and thought quite different from other ruins I had visited. We organised a taxi there from Cusco, quite a steep road up. We were amongst a handful of people there and it was beautiful to wander around. Used our tourist ticket that we had previously purchased. If you want to visit a few sites the 10 day one is good value. Tipon had previously been recommended and glad we took the advice and went

More Inca ruins...
Dec 2019
I’d already been to a few Inca ruins including MP and the sites around Cusco and Ollantaytambo in the previous week and I didn’t think there was anything unique at Tipon. However, I still enjoyed it – it was very peaceful and I spent about 2 hours walking round the site and taking photos.

I traveled there with two friends and a guide from the Bioandean Expeditions agency from Cusco to the municipality of Tipón and then in a taxi uphill to the ruins. I'm glad I didn't try to climb the hill: the 4km road is quite steep and rises to 3400 meters. I went back down; Taxis passed me on the road but I didn't mind the walk downhill.

Entry to this site is included on the Boleto Turistico, or you can pay an entry fee (S/. 10) when you get there.

If you wanted to see more ruins and had the energy you could catch another bus from Tipon to Pikillacqta (further along on the same road).
