Inca Quarry Trail

The Inca Quarry Trail will follow the original pathway of the Incas that were used to transport the big rocks to built the Incan village and temple of Ollantaytambo. There are many cut stones—known as “tired stones”—still prevail in the ancient quarry. They have never made it to the village. These carved stones were possibly abandoned, which makes the area even more enigmatic and fascinating.

That is not all, there are many burial stone towers that probably housed the rest of the stonecutters. The path winds up the hill, passing groups of stone houses to Inti Punku (Sun Gate). The Inca quarry trail let you enjoy the stunning views of Mt Veronica in the great Sacred valley of the Incas.
