Not too much to see here other than some interesting fountains and a good bit of real estate to wander around on. Up in the hills so you can get a good amount of hill climbing done without too much restriction.

The Incas are known for their skill in managing running waters, mostly for agricultural purposes. But there are also well-preserved examples of civil water management (I have seen examples in Ollantaytambo and in Machu Picchu, and I know that Tipon's example exists, although I haven't...More

If I have to manage this place, I will cordon off the area near the ruins to preserve the foundation and integrity of the structures. Tourists overrun this small attraction like a mob with their compulsion to takes selfies and photos in every nook close...More

We took a walk up the path here to the baths. This was one of the highest points on our tour at 12,500 ft. The baths themselves were ok, but not the most dramatic. It was interesting to see, but definitely more inspirational things one...More

Very interesting ruins of a temple and walls. The very walkable road up to the ruins is less than a quarter of a mile. Visit this are with a guide to get the most out of the visit.

If you haven't seen enough amazing Quechua stonework at the other sites you've visited, and have a few spare minutes in the afternoon, then this might be a worthwhile stop. It's a 8-10' walk from the entrance and is a small but picturesque site. Tambomachay...More

A small site accessed via a short uphill walk. For those new to altitude, take it slowly. The stonework is impressive as all Incan stonework seems to be. The freely running water and mountain backdrop certainly provide atmosphere. Avoid the peddlers - not good quality.

Apart from the interesting walk to reach the sites, it was evident how important this purification baths were for the Inca Uber classes and nobility. The place, the architecture, the water engineering is impressive and it conveys a great feeling of serenity
