Inca Bridge, Ollantaytambo

When in the archeologically significant town, be sure to stop by and cross Inca Bridge. The original Incan-made bridge still stands as a foundation for the modern bridge. Walking distance from center of the city, the bridge offers yet another Incan relic among the many other ruins and artifacts in this region. However, don’t confuse this bridge with the more famous wooden Inca bridge, which is located on a sheer cliff in Machu Picchu.

  • The track is beautiful, the bridge - I expected a bit more
  • 20 min away from the citadell. Easy straight way.
  • Amazing place. If you are afraid of heights you may have a hard time getting to it, as the path is very narrow.
  • It is not only about the bridge! Great view from this point and eonderful vegetation downhill as well. Only 7 minutes of nice walking from Machu Picchu. The bridge itself is beautiful.
  • My favorite place in Machu Picchu. Go here.
