    You don't need to have a great physique

    This trek is recommended for almost anyone, as long as you feel like seeing some of the most amazing buildings of what was the empire of the Incas. Most of the trail will be downhill, except for the first 20 minutes, which ripples up and down. Most of the trail goes along the edge of the mountain so we do not recommend doing this hike with young children; but if you do, take them by the hand and watch for them.

    It will take between 1 hour and ½ and 2 hours to complete the journey from the top of the mountain to the Pisac market, in the town square. However, as you should imagine, the time can vary depending on the pace at which you walk, how long you stop at each of the places you want, and how long you take to rest.

    Bring a small bottle of water with you, sellers may be found before entering the site, but you cannot count that they are there.

    We recommend using hiking shoes, it is the most suitable footwear for this walk.

    Be sure to wear sun protection! The hike is quite exposed, and will end with burns from not protecting yourself.

    Walking sticks are still allowed in Pisac, take 1 or 2 "if you need them". Remember that you will not be able to use them in Machu Picchu.

    Although the path is well marked, they may have forgotten to mark some places; If you are not sure where to go, remember that the mountain must remain almost at all times to your right, this is not lost.

    The rainy season is from November to March, to make your visit during this time be prepared to get wet. The rain usually falls in the afternoon, so we recommend doing the walk in the morning. However, it can rain at any time of the year.

    The Pisac Archaeological Park is open every day of the year from 7 am to 6 pm.
