The visit to Tipon was undertaken as a private tour with Machu Picchu Viajes Peru. Our guide was Ramiro. As with the other Inca ruins we visited, the ones at Tipon are unique. As we enter the site, there is water falling down one side of the terraces through a series of channels. I got really excited seeing this, however,... More

VISIT Juan at the headspring at Tipon. He is a Boleto Park Ranger who gave me an enchanting explanation of this site and other sites close by while i sat in the grass listening to him, in Spanish, with the sound of the beautiful fountains. It is a great area for a bit of hiking, or a lot if you... More

The flow of water around this site is consistent and still opporating. I took the extra hike to the Intiwatana overlook. Great pictures.

Interesting view into the Incan engineering. As with all of the Incan ruins, there are steps. I think some with disabilities would find it difficult to enjoy this site.

It's not that advertised as other touristic places, but it is a MUST, if you went to Cusco to see history, please come here, you'll see what I mean if you decide to go, a great example of the inca architecture, personally, I thought it was the best of the best I saw in Cusco

This place is so underrated based on the amount of people that go there. Do yourself a favour and visit this place. I rate this place #2 (#1 being Machu Picchu obviously). It is a pain to get to and a taxi will cost you a lot of cash. Public Bus will be a pain. Therefore, best way is to... More

One of my best place in Cusco area, visited all historical, arheological and Inka sites, and this is one of the best, because wheather in Machu Picchu was rainy and cloudy I can say that Tipon was even beter. The energy, story and all site is simply the best.

If you are a civil engineer or interested in technical facts, you should visit. This was constructed at about 12 thousand feet above sea level. Many, many terraces. Aqueducts were used to provide water to all areas. Amazing construction in the valley.
