PUMAMARKA ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE

PUMAMARKA ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE

We take our private transport from your hotel (or Ollantaytambo) and head to the Pumamarca site. We discover this little-visited archaeological site located near Pallata. From there we will walk to Ollantaytambo following a beautiful path along an impressive ravine. We cross huge platforms that have their origin in the Inca era and are still used today. We finally reach Ollantaytambo, a great example of the urban engineering of the Incas.
