Apart from the interesting walk to reach the sites, it was evident how important this purification baths were for the Inca Uber classes and nobility. The place, the architecture, the water engineering is impressive and it conveys a great feeling of serenity

If one goes early, one can have the place to themselves before the tour busses arrive. Place requires a gradual uphill climb and restrooms are available at the entrance. Bring your own Paper.

Small area of ruins but interesting history of the high class and lower class bathing/purification buildings. Nice, easy walk to baths. Could access another more strenuous hiking path from here as well

If you're seeing all the other ruins just outside Cusco, then go ahead and check it out, especially if you have the card that lets you visit it all. And if you're there, keep hiking down the river, and there's lots more unrestored terraces and...More

Very easy to walk from Tambomachay to Cusco visiting the other sites on the route. Tambomachay is small but nice with the fountains and inca structures.

A quick ride outside Cusco, the baths are actually unexpectedly interesting. Offer another look into Incan culture, and the ingenuity of their civilization. If you can manage to fit them into your itinerary, I would recommend a visit. Won't take long and won't involve excessive...More
