Intimidating at first. Walking along a narrow path is hair raising but anxiety quickly dissipates as soon as you start to view the astonishing views of the cliffs all around. A trail that should not be skipped for any reason. Very safe trail.

This was a fantastic experience to be able to walk to the Inca bridge. It takes about half an hour for a reasonable fit person to walk to walking along the cliffs and the views of the rivewr below. It is amazing how they built...More

We made the nice hike to the Inca Bridge. Seeing the hydroplant from above along the way was kinda neat, too. You can't reach the bridge itself, as a tourist tried to cross a year or so ago and fell to their death.

The hike to the Inca Bridge is pretty easy and the views are stunning. You have a different angle to view the Machu Picchu ruins and great views of the valley on the other side. The path at times is narrow with steep cliffs but...More

Repeat after me: it's not always the destination, it's the journey! I see many people are less then thrilled with the Inca bridge when they get there. And yes, it looks like 4-6 logs or planks across a 12 ft notch cut into the rock...More

After 4 days on the trail, I wasn't sure I wanted to hike any more ( I'm 50+). However, you only live once and I may never be back. It was a very easy climb. Beautiful scenery and fewer people. I'm so glad I went...More

After reading some of the previous reviews of the Inca Bridge, I realized some missed the point. To see the Inca Bridge is to get a better understanding of the Inca's ingenuity. The hike to the bridge is not that difficult and the actual bridge...More

Inca Bridge is a 40 minutes walk (round trip) from Machu Picchu. It´s included with the ticket to Machu Picchu. It´s difficult to believe that in the XV century the Inca´s build a stone bridge in the middle of the mountains

Worth the trip in and out; seeing the path that the Incas traversed on the sheer cliff of a mountain was inspiring.

We had spare time so walked to the bridge, the walk is pretty but it isn't the most interesting bridge and there are better walks nearby

You pay for your entrance at the gate (or beforehand because it's getting very restrictive) and there is a very clean toilet facility right before the gate. If I remember correctly it's about 2 soles. There is a Belmond... More

The bridge lies inside the Machu Picchu "complex" so you don't need an extra ticket to get to the bridge. The trailhead is up the mountainside from the main part of the ruins. There is a sign pointing you in the right... More
