“Worth the walk”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

I encourage anyone to walk up from Cusco Plaza, as it is about a 30 minute walk, but the walk is easy, and the views are great. Hire a guide once there (Guido was great) and it is so worth exploring. Also, walk over to the Christo Blanco, as it is worth seeing and is only a 10 minute walk away.

“Good side trip from Cusco”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Be careful on those sacred rocks. They get pretty slick in the rain.

“Worth the trip up the hill.”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

The enormity of the stones are amazing - the largest is 27 ft. high! The actual workmanship is comperable to Machu Picchu. Recommend going in the afternoon - Llamas grazing, and safer too.
