  • The ruins of Pinkuylluna are free, you can be accessed through the town of Ollantaytambo. 17 after close the road, so it is advisable to access in the morning. The views are incredible, but the path is quite steep stone stairs and narrow trails. If you suffer from vertigo is not recommended and must be fed up with water, as well as wind.
