Sacsayhuamán was a fortress where the Inca had a legendary showdown with the Spanish. This site showcases the Inca’s famous stone masonry, with gigantic stones that fit tightly together.
Next, you’ll visit the community of Yuncaypata. While you’re here you can visit with Quechua Indians. They still wear colorful, traditional textiles.
Follow the trail from there to Pumamarca, an Inca ruin between the Patacancha and Yuracmayo rivers. These ruins make a striking site on the hillside, and used to control access to the nearby town of Ollantaytambo.
You can explore the ruins by foot while the mule driver watches over your horses. On breaks, your guide will provide you with snacks.
Perched on the hillside north of Cusco, the immense fortress ruins of Sacsayhuamán are some of the most impressive ruins in the area, holding both religious and military significance. When visitors hike up to the site, they will likely see a herd of alpaca, the domesticated South American camelid, roaming among the ruins.
