    This is a nice friendly hostel right on the main plaza. The owner has had a hostel in town for over 10 years & is a mine of information regarding the entire Sacred Valley as well as genuine volunteering options in the area. The hostel was clean & welcoming. The roof terrace had fantastic views to the surrounding hills. The charm to Ollantaytambo is that it is a small working town; yes tourists come through here in their droves to visit MP etc but you will see farmers working the fields of the very fertile sacred valley. Katty asks that guests contribute to the local community; a 1kg bag of sugar or rice helps in a big way. 4Kg of sugar from the local market cost me 10soles, approx 2pounds. One thing to note is that Katty moved her hostel from another part of town a few years back. Another hostel opened in the same area with pretty much the same name run by an English woman. Poor show really!

This little town has a wealth of historic monuments both Inca & ancient & is set in mountains that look totally like the ones in Glencoe. I met several foreigners on my walks here who told me they had met a few other Scottish folk who …

    ... definitely helped to cool me down and we repeated this everytime we reached a mountain spring. Tony stayed by my side the whole time which must have been difficult for him because he usually hikes at quite a fast pace. Whenever we reached a little shade on the mountain side we stopped for a couple of minutes. I can't begin to imagine what the Incan's went through building those stone steps up the mountainside. The second thing that really helped me was Edwin. He had ...
