A must-see and must-do in the town. About an hour-long round-trip hike, to explore the granaries, and see a gorgeous bird's eye view of the town. The hike is FREE (and you don't need a guide), it's short, and there are way less people on...More

Well preserved Inca ruins of houses and fortresses. You get a great view over the city as well as the famous archeological site. It is not touristy which is really good. However, once you climb there, you should be really careful (slippery and dusty road).

We found this hidden gem by more luck than planning. A bit steep and rocky at times but fantastic views of the ruins and town make it well worth the effort.

Would recommend anyone thinking of going to the archeological ruins to come here instead (or in addition to). While the ruins are around s/140, Pinkuylluna is free and boasts some great vantages of the ruins along the hike.

If you don't want to pay to get into the ruins or just want a short day hike, take this one. When you come in to town take the last right turn before entering the town square. Walk about 2 blocks and you'll see a...More
