Even the rain did not bother us, although it was raining cats and dogs that day. There isn't much to see here, but the small construction still amazes when you think how old it is.

This area is a bit on the smaller side, but it is worth a visit to learn about the history and the significance of this site. You will definitely want a guide to provide detailed information. The irrigation systems here are particularly interesting and worth...More

A inca ruin dedicated to water. The water apparently has qualitys to promote youth so everyone was crowding around to splash it on their faces.

Not much to see, but worth stopping by since it's so close to Puca Pucara. Entrance is included with the Incan sites ticket.

This was part of our Sacred Valley Tour and a very nice way to spend a day. We were in Cusco for 6 days so we did Tambomachay two days after Macu Picu. (Needed the rest). If you truly love looking around the ruins, you...More

There is a long paved path leading from the parking lot to the site. The thin air at 4100 meters above sea level triples the difficulty of the climb. It was believed to be the final resting point for the Inca people on pilgrimage to...More

I would allow about 1.5 to 2 hours at this site unless you are really serious about exploring the ruins and need to see every detail. As this was the umpteenth Inca ruin on my itinerary I didn't see the need to spend a lot... More
