"Getting there and around" Pisac Transportation Tip by darthmilmo

Pisac Transportation: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  Pisac Ruinas
by darthmilmo

There are plenty of small buses and micro-buses that ply the roads within the Sacred Valley. This are usually short rides (couple of hours tops). Although it may not be the most comfortable experiece, it sure beats hiring a cab or a tour. The cost per hour travelled is usually under $1 USD. Pisac lies about one hour from Cusco by bus.

To get to the ruins, grab a taxi-collectivo from the market area or walk uphill. The route is easy to follow so ask a local for the path. It's best to take a taxi and walk back then to climb up the mountain. Remember, Pisac lies around 3000 meters above sea level so pace yourself!
