Pinkuylluna Mountain Granaries is located on the opposite side of temple and difficult to walk around. The beginning of the climb is a small door in the city between the narrow streets and that door is open until 17:00. The walk to the top can...More

I only went up as high as the granary buildings. You can go higher, but that wasn't for me! The climb itself started out pretty steep but then got somewhat easier. There were handrails, but there were some tricky sections, especially coming down. I read...More

You can see the granaries from everywhere in town and happened to be in an AirBnB just steps from the trailhead so when we had an hour before breakfast we headed up and enjoyed the easy hike and views of the valley with the sun...More

Make sure you take plenty of water with you and sun cream and sun hats. I climbed on a very sunny day and there was little shade until you reached the buildings. The climb is challenging if you've not acclimatised as it is very steep....More

This is actually a pretty tough/steep hike, albeit brief. The views from up here of the town and the Temple of the Sun and the mountains are pretty fantastic! Believe it or not, these ruins were once 'refrigerators' or 'pantries' used to store food in...More
