INCA QUARRY TRAIL DAY HIKE
Inca Quarry Trail is a new route that visits the ancient stone quarry and reaches the Sungate. The Quarry Trail was used to transport the rocks to built the Ollantaytambo. There are many cut stones—known as “tired stones”—still remain in the ancient Inca Quarry. They have never made it to the sacred valley of the incas. These carved stones were possibly abandoned, which makes the area even more enigmatic and fascinating to visit.

The Inca Quarry Trail also shows the burial stone towers that probably housed the rest of the ancient stonecutters. The path winds up the hill, passing groups of stone houses to Inti Punku (Sun Gate). Delight yourself as you enjoy the remote Inca ruins and the spectacular Andean views. Most importantly, the Inca Quarry Trail is the newest and the least crowded route that begins and ends in Ollantaytambo. And can connect to Machu Pichu by train at night.
