    How to get there

    by SirRichard Written May 9, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most tourits come here in groups from Cuzco, the nearest big town. They come for a half day trip, a visit to the market, a visit to the ruins and back to Cuzco. You can do that for about 6 USD.
    But there is a cheaper way. Many minibuses (colectivos) go to Pisac on sunday, as it's market day. They leave from the south part of Cuzco, and take you there in about 1 hour. They use to be crowded but are cheap (2 soles, 0,7 USD) and is a great experience.
    When you arrive there, just follow the crowds!

    Getting there and around

    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!

    Start at the top of the ruins

    Make sure you start at the top of the ruins. Our taxi driver missed on turn-off so we started around mid-level. He later figured it out an dtook us to the very top.
