Visiting the Granaries is another must when visiting Ollantaytambo. We were staying at the Apu Lodge. The entrance is just down from the lodge so look for the sign on the walkway. It is a good climb uphill, a little steep so take your time. The view of the town and Sacred Valley is worth it. These old store houses... 更多
We hike here very early in the morning. The route is steep up and down and somewhat uneven but not difficult for in shape sixty year olds, not fully acclimatized to the altitude. The view across the town to the ruins is worth every step. There was no charge either.
The entrance is very inconspicuous and off the beaten path, but we did this one afternoon before we left Ollantaytambo because we didn't want to venture too far from the town. Its a bit of a strenuous hike, but the views from the top are breath taking and there are some cool ruins to check out. I'd do it again... 更多
Access to Pinkuylluna is down one of the cobble alleys off of the main square. This is a great hike with amazing views of Ollantaytambo
Not an easy climb in areas but should be doable for most. Wear good sturdy shoes and if you're afraid of heights you may want to only attempt the lower part of the trail. It's a free trail, although not easy to find the entry gate down the long narrow street (look for the above eye level sign with Pinkuylluna... 更多

Really great hike, though definitely tough in some places. Really prepared us for Huayna Picchu hike the next day. Beautiful views - must visit in Ollanta
Not many Inca ruins are easily accessible and free but this one is. Incredible ruins in the side of a mountain that is a short climb up from town in Ollantaytambo.
If you can only see one Ruin here then go to the larger Ollantaytambo Ruins, but if you have some extra time and enjoy a good hike, explore this area. We went with our six year old and physically she was fine but she slipped and almost had a horrendous fall - so please be careful hiking this with younger... 更多
