Review of Inca Bridge

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 ruins here are also breathtaking (literally) as you climb the steep steps of one of the Incan's last battlegrounds. Amazing scenery, amazing town and ruins. Highly recommended. (Much shorter train trip as well!)

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 all the buses end up here in the afternoon making it very crowded. A far better option is to stay the night and experience the tranquillity of the ruins in the morning when you will have it all to yourself. You can then take an afternoon train to Agua Caliente or bus back to Cuzco.
Be warned - it is a steep climb with a wondrous view of the valley as a reward.

We visited the lower part of Ollantatambo in the afternoon after spending the morning at teh ruins of Pisac. We were too tired to walk up to the top but we thoroughly enjoyed visiting the lower part and learn about the Inca architecture. Recommend it highl.

The bridge is just like any other old little bridge in Peru. Walk passed the bridge for a great view. Walk on for about 30mins to the INKA POOL (or la piscina Inka). Ask a local or an Awamaki volunteer to take you, you will not find it on your own. The Inka Pool is SURREAL. It is a rectangle swimming pool all natural with 2 fresh water sources and ahhhh. Beware of dogs. Carry stones to throw at them if they get too close.

The ruins of Ollantaytambo were the first I've ever seen in my life. We were overwhelmed by the greatness, the hight, ... We visited the ruins from two sides. The view from the top makes you wonder how they build this hundreds of years ago.
