Tony: We took a bus from Cusco to Pisac. Then we took a taxi up the valley to a ticket booth. We got our tickets and started hiking around some awesome Inca ruins. We made our way along a ridge with sharp cliffs on each side of us. Near the end of the mountain we reached an Incan military base with a great view of Pisac. We then descended steep tariffs that lead straight back down to the village of Pisac.

(Hiked 7.48 HARD miles)
