The inca site is high in the hills overlooking stunning valleys and mountains. It's at around 3500 metres so walking around the ruins gets your lungs working. Advice is to arrive early - we were there at 9am. Any time after 10.30 and the place...More

Pisac is an impressive Inca site in the northern Sacred Valley. There are excellent views of the terraces and buildings. The burial sites in the mountains are interesting too.

Incredible Inca citadell on top of the hill behind Pisac! The market is also nice to see even if equal to all the others.

A truly learning experience, our guide was very good. Easier to do than other archaeological sites. Don't miss it.. Plus, amazing views.

Need help with trip to Cusco/SV on 3/19 - 3/27 (13 Replies)
We will be arriving in Cusco on March 19 and returning to Lima on March 27. I have various things I want to do and see and am not sure what to try and see and what to skip. I have been looking at maps and tour sites and just don't know how much time to allow for each visit. I really need some suggestions on my itinerary. First I will list the things I want to do (not in order) and then I'll list my possible itinerary. 1. Visit Pisac Market on Sunday 2. Visit Pisac ruins 3. Visit/see how...More

Thank you both for the information. I have given it alot of thought and think I would like to stay in Pisac the night before we tour the market on Sunday, so this would put us there our first night. I gather from your info that Sunday can be spent at the market, exploring the town and touring the ruins. I did get a better feel for where the cities are located and think one night in Pisac is good and then we should make our second night in Ollantaytambo. I have been in contact with two atv...More

Base in Pisac or Ollantamyambo? (3 Replies)
Where should we base ourselves for spending 2-3 days in the Sacred Valley? We'd like to trek and visit some ruins and explore the town of Ollantaytambo.

I would rather stay in Urubamba which is almost in the center of the SV from where I can visit and be closer to most sites. Check this forum for Urubamba recommended hotels.

We are planning to do the SV and MP while on our trip in Peru. I have been going through the posts but still have some questions. The plan is to: Day 1: Arrive in Cusco (morning) and take taxi/bus to SV, perhaps straight from airport. I thought we should start with pisac, doing the salt mines on the way. Questions: 1) How long does the trip take from cusco airport to pisac, if you do the salt mines on the way? 2) Is it possible to take a taxi from the airport straight to...More

1.- About 40 minutes. The salt mines are NOT on the way from Cusco city to Pisac 2.- Yes. Around $35-40 3.- Not important, you can buy yr tickets in Aguas Calientes. The tickets office is opened from 5:30 am until 10 pm. Not limit to the number of visitors. Day 2 : I would recommend you stay in Urubamba. Good hotels, check the reviews here. Its half way between Pisac and Olly and has the best restaurants. Its actually close to the Salt mines as well. 3.- Contact Sophie at...More
