One of my favorite experiences in Peru. No entrance fee, yet you can experience history hands-on without heckling and at your own pace. I would say there are different "levels" of the hiking there. The average person could make it to the granaries ok. Above...More

Pinkuylluna is just few minutes from Ollantaytambo town square. It is quite steep and would take about 1-2 hours, depending on your speed, to get the site. The path is narrow but not really bad to hike. It has great bird's view of entire town...More

This hike isn't as crazy as it looks from below, or maybe it's just short enough that you're practically at the granaries and then onto the four towers that mark the crown of the head of the Tunupa, the god of abundance, before you know...More

Didn't make it all the way to the top of this one but you still have good views of the town and the Archaeological Park. Have to walk down the right alley to find it.

We found out about Pinkuylluna by chance from our tour guide, who made a quick comment about it while we at the Ollantaytambo Ruins. And we absolutely loved it! From the Ollantaytambo Ruins, you have a great view of the Pinkuylluna grain storage houses -...More

A must-see and must-do in the town. About an hour-long round-trip hike, to explore the granaries, and see a gorgeous bird's eye view of the town. The hike is FREE (and you don't need a guide), it's short, and there are way less people on...More
