Make sure you take plenty of water with you and sun cream and sun hats. I climbed on a very sunny day and there was little shade until you reached the buildings. The climb is challenging if you've not acclimatised as it is very steep. Some parts there are hand rails but other parts are shear drops, so if you're... 更多
This is actually a pretty tough/steep hike, albeit brief. The views from up here of the town and the Temple of the Sun and the mountains are pretty fantastic! Believe it or not, these ruins were once 'refrigerators' or 'pantries' used to store food in the Inca times. There are not plaques or signs explaining what you are viewing, so... 更多
The hike up is a little bit of a challenge due to the elevation. I have a fear of heights/exposure and was fine for the most part. It was really only once on top when I moved to the very corner edge that I got that funny feeling. The trail is steep but it is not a sheer drop off... 更多
When I first went to Ollanta I realized that was some ruins right up in the cliff of a mountain which surrounded the city and I was curious about to get in there. So, when I came back to spend the night I tried to find a way to top. I was walking through the small streets when suddenly I... 更多
You climb quickly out of the town and onto the steep hillside - the views are wonderful. This is a free site, so the footpaths are a title rough in places. And the question is always - Why? What was this for? Lots of theories, but just enjoy!
Walked up here on second day in Ollantaytambo. Nice to sit up here and relax. Buildings are not as impressive as the main fortress ruins, but views are gorgeous. Hike is short but steep. Suggest going up to granaries (steep), then going down less steep trail by going to military outlook ruins and then back to bottom. You can also... 更多
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.
