Travel Blogs from Ollantaytambo

Ollantaytambo, Glencoe in South America!

A travel blog entry by tanyaconnor

I stopped here as a spur of the moment decision on the way back from Aguas Calientes. What a great choice. 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 …

Sacred Valley, the fortress of the Inca

A travel blog entry by netgull

Today it is time to hit the highlands! Despite the night of interrupted sleep (it seemed like everyone in the room had to leave early in the morning, in one hour intervals!), I still feel pretty awake when I catch the taxi to the airport at 6.30. After a very smooth one hour flight, I step out on the Andes to face Cuzco at the side of the hill. But …

Sacred Valley

We set off for our Sacred Valley tour on a pretty smart tour bus with a really good English-speaking guide. It took us over some high mountain passes, up & down in altitude. The high mountains in the distance were snow-capped and there were some nice views down the valleys. We could see the river & some of the areas where the heavy rains …

Aguas Calientes (warm waters) lived up to it name when the cold tap didn't work in my shower and to avoid scolding myself I left for my date with Macchu Picchu with all the conditioner still in my hair. I don't think the mountains noticed as it was absolutely chucking it down from the moment I drew the curtains and everyone and everything outside …

Amazing horseback ride to salt mines, and Moray

A travel blog entry by lmhbeatles

We found out late at night that we would be doing the horseback ride the next morning. Yay! We had some delicious breakfast at the ecolodge, and met up with a girl staying at the same hotel and then another girl staying at a different place. Both Americans. The lady giving the tour was named Adriana. Super nice!! We got on the horses, and set off …

    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!
