Come here in the afternoon when the main ruin across the valley has been over run with tourists. These ruins are in excellent condition, one of my places on our two week trip

One of my favorite experiences in Peru. No entrance fee, yet you can experience history hands-on without heckling and at your own pace. I would say there are different "levels" of the hiking there. The average person could make it to the granaries ok. Above...More
