Really beautiful and impressive ruin. I suggest walking all the way to the top so that you can walk around without a huge mob of tourists and tour guides blocking you everywhere. It's very peaceful at the top
Another Inca marvel. How could they build such a place without modern tools. Our guide joked they used Guinea pigs tin harness by the thousands to move the stones. The climb to the top is exhausting but well worth the view.
It was an amazing reminder of the Inca. The ruins were so well preserved and fun to hike. The buses to do seem to pour in the tourist here but does not ruin the experience.
Yes, it is remarkable what the Inca's accomplished while much of Europe was in the Dark Ages. But let's not forget ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman.....civilizations. For my second visit here and third to Machu Picchu, the setting for Machu Picchu is much more picturesque, though the terraces here and at Moray aren't as dramatic as at Ollantaytambo. For me, however,... 更多
Very narrow streets and you can see the Inca culture. We had a brilliant guide who explained lots of the history of the area to us and how this was the last Inca strong hold before Machu Picchu. There is also a lovely market to buy beautiful scarves. Leather goods and jewellery
One of the best Incan sites we visited. This site is a must see site so do take the time to wander the site. Be sure to hike to the top. A guide or audio tour is a must as you will bypass very interesting features if you do not understand what you are seeing.
Another 'must do' in the Sacred Valley. Make sure you have a guide with you as the information they can pass on to you is incredible - it really enhances the experience, and helps you understand what this place is all about. Make sure you have a camera - you really need to capture the experience.
Ollantaytambo town sits in a river valley, that is surrounded by remnants of Inca buildings with the most impressive being the Citadel which comprises a Sun Temple, Water Temple, warehouses, residences, baths and a Fortress right at the top with a panoramic view of the town and the surrounding river valley. Preserved as part of the Ollantaytambo National Park, the... 更多
This site is one of the most mind blowing and incredible sites I have ever seen first hand! I highly recommend for everyone to see!! The site has technological advancement that we cannot replicate today. You will see things that are unexplained and technology that we cannot build today. I am a student in physics and anthropology, and all I... 更多
Did this as part of our g adventures tour the day before starting our inca trail. Interesting to see the brick work and get the history behind the terraces and why they built everything on hills. There are also some massive rocks on the hill that were moved by hand from another mountain. The terrain is very uneven and i... 更多
The Temple is great. You have some really great views once you get to the top of the temple. Definitely worth checking out. Instagram: @tommiesox
