Great place but It took my energy away....

Beautiful views, amazing structures and history. If you are out of shape like me it is quite a walk, tons of stairs.

Absolutely worse the mild effort to get here from Cusco. We did a self guided tour/hike of the ruins after taking a tivo van from Cusco (roughly 50 min) and deciding not to bother with a tour guide. We entered the site behind the market and trekked uphill to some fantastic archeological ruins and sweeping views of the valley and... More

This place blew me away. One of the most beautiful views I've ever beheld. The ruins were amazing, but the view of the valley below was wholly mesmerizing. Do yourself a favor and schedule a stop here - and the Sacred Valley in general - on your visit to the region. You won't regret it!

Amazing place that augments a visit to Machu Picchu for a more thorough understanding of Inca civilization.

The views and ancient ruins were spectacular. It was at the head of the sacred valley and provided sweeping vistas and a feeling of a special people and time.
