I thought I was in good shape, but the altitude can clobber you. Take altitude pills at least a day before arriving into the Cusco area to adjust. Drink lots of water and bring a ziplock bag with toil... more »

We climbed on foot by the Lamay sector but delay of 3 hours, the best would have been to take auto Calca in 30 minutes but it was worth it and we really enjoyed it. There were no guides but we liked the landscape and we went back to our ancestors. From the top you can see throughout the Sacred Valley.
I was in the Sacred Valley and wanted to see this interesting site, so I woke up in Ollanta at 5:30, and then took a Collectivo and bus to Lamay (very cheap). We headed off independently up the Lamay ... more »
Very secluded. It's a medium to long hike in depending on your route. Gorgeous views. Camping is allowed on site.
When you visit Peru there are certain boxes you just have to check, e.g. the Machu Picchu. I personally prefer to find the spots less visited by the tourist masses. This hike is one such example. Wonderful climb up to 4,800 meters above sea level (come acclimatized to altitude). Nature in its best. Then a colorful decent to the ruins where I was literally alone.
We took a guided tour that drove us up into the mountains, walked up to a 4200m pass then down an Inca trail into Huchuy Qosqo. We were the only people at an interesting but essential unexcavated site. Go for the serenity. The walk down into the valley the next day was much easier than walking up would have been and there was a condor cruising the thermals. Bonus
Incredible experience! Worth going, especially if you want to avoid crowded paths since this trekk is less known. Still historically important site though, astonishing, and a great view over the Valle of Incas. You can only walk (or horseback trip) and some parts are quite steep but totally accessible if you are a good hiker.
