Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was the final stop in our half-day City Tour. The site was at an elevation of 12150 feet above sea level, and the path was entirely on cobblestones. It was an effort for us tired tourists to get up there, but it really was worth the trouble.

When we arrived, we saw a series of large terraces, some very high up on a hill. The terraces, as expected, were built with Inca precision that we have seen everywhere else. What made this place different was the series of niches built into the terraces, and water running through several aqueducts that are clearly seen through the rocks.

The exact purpose of this site is unknown, but our guide informed us that it could have been a bathing site for the Inca elite (sort of spa in the mountains), or a military outpost judging from the watchtowers way up in the mountains. The presence of pools of water also could have been used for ceremonial purposes.

The series of terraces were probably built over a natural spring which continuously feeds the aqueducts, canals and little waterfalls that are seen all over the site.

The entrance fee for this is included in the Cuzco Tourist Ticket, so make sure that you have the ticket with you.

Absolutely worth a visit.

Tambomachay is a fascinating Inca archaeological site near Cusco, Peru. It's known for its impressive stone structures and intricate water channels, showcasing the engineering prowess of the Inca civilization. The site's serene atmosphere and proximity to Cusco make it a worthwhile stop for history enthusiasts and travelers. Exercise caution regarding the altitude; it's advisable not to visit this site until you've acclimated to it.

Loved this.

The water on the stones was especially nice to see.

A pleasant stroll along the path to see the stones and at an easy pace - no hills which makes a difference.

This place is special because of its ability to prove the incredible wonder of the Incan civilization. Here, you'll be able to observe how the Incas conquered water with fountains and aqueducts pouring out of the hillside. Absolutely lovely and make sure you've adjusted to the altitude before you hike up the hill.

I loved!!! A beautiful place where you can feel the energy. They still don't know where the water comes from. Is incredible! I would recommend going with a tour guide to explain the Inca history.
I took Peru Tripper agency for this tour.

Amazing site to see the aqueducts. We hired a taxi to drive us to various sites. Acclimatize to the sacred valley before climbing high Altitude. It was very hard to breathe and walk. Walk slow and constant. We saw some vendors selling ponchos that we bought. Make sure to bargain. Take some lovely pics with the llamas. It was a wonderful site to visit

From Cusco city center, you can take a white bus called "Cristo Blanco" that costs 2 soles per person. The entrance fee is included in the tourist ticket that costs 130 soles. The complex is quite small but very well preserved. You can walk up the mountain.

This was the last of the "ruins" we visited with a guide, and it was the. most peaceful. The stream and the water features are so calming, it is easy to see why it was a retreat. I made videos so I could listen to them later and remember the restful location.

Tambomachay is beautiful and mistery place, I visited myself and explore long time to undestands.

Tambomachay is eight kilometres from Cusco and one kilometre from Puca-Pucara, on the slopes of a hill. Ancient fountains preside over this tranquil and secluded spot, which is commonly known as "El Baño del Inca," or Inca's Bath.
