This site was another piece of Inca wonder. A short steep hike that was rewarded with a spectacular view of the village and main ruins and an up close interface with a very distinct piece of the Inca legacy.

Start early enough to make it to the top! We made it to the graineries, but on the climb to the top, the guard made us turn around, because there was not enough time to make it the top and back down before sunset. Awesome views across the valley and the mountain on the other side. A walking stick would... More

Climb to the top of this mountain. You WILL NOT regret it. It was our favorite thing that we did in the whole sacred valley so far. The views are truly incredible and it's just a lot of fun anyway. It takes about 2 hours there and back. Wear layers, it gets hot and cold at different points along the... More

While you don't have to be in great shape tip make the climb you definitely need to have fit legs. The "Stairs" are just mountain rocks with a railing (last picture) so people with knee or ankle problems will likely have some trouble. I only went to the lower ruins because I'm not as fit as I should be, but... More

Hopefully it's still free. Wonderful little ruins that give you a great view of the whole little living Incan city. I highly recommend the hike up, it's a bit steep, but there are good steps most of the way. Just take lots of breaks because the altitude can get to you if aren't acclimated.

Went up here in the early afternoon following a visit to the ruins at Ollantaytambo in the morning. The walk up is quite steep but perfectly doable if you take your time. I would consider myself of average fitness and went up with a daughter who suffers from vertigo and we still managed to get up in half an hour.... More

The entrance to Pinkuylluna is on Lare Calle, which is the first right when heading into Ollantaytambo. About half way up the cobblestone street, a gateway on the right. The beginning of the walk is steep and it can take your breath away quite quickly if not used to the altitude of Ollanta (2800m). Not long after walking up there... More

Less known and visited than the Ollantaytambo Ruins, the Inka Storehouses (officially called Pinkuylluna Mountain Granaries) is an absolute must see! It is quite an out-of-breath climb to get to it – especially if you’re not used to high altitude – but it is worth the effort, with amazing views from the top! The Inka Storehouses are visible from the... More

The main ruins become over run with tourists in the afternoon so this is a good option if you have an hour in the afternoon. It is also a bit cooler in the late afternoon. It is free to visit and only a 15-20 minute walk to get there. Gives a great view over Olly.

So we had a 4 hour stop over at Ollantaytambo because our train to AC was delayed. We decided to just hike the mountain opposite to the ruins of Ollantaytambo because there was a long line to enter the actual ruins. It was so much fun! It was a pretty strenuous hike mostly because I was still acclimating to the... More
