Yes, there is a bridge called Inca Bridge in Ollantaytambo. Not worth the walk over the very busy narrow roads to get there. Even with many pedestrians on the road, it is clear that the culture is cars have right away.

Absolutely make sure you take the train from Ollantaytambo and not from Cusco. This is a town that should be stopped in at least one way. The town itself seems to still be in Incan times with the small cobbled streets and amazing feel. The...More

The pueblo of Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley is in some ways an equivalent experience to the fabled Macchu Picchu. The Inca bridge and the marvellous ruins make up a sight that justifies a days exploration. Most people do a bus tour from Cuzco so...More
