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

Place with stunning views, part of the Machu Picchu complex. This is not the most interesting side of it and also mind that caution is needed. The site is not well secured.

If the citadel is crowded with tour groups take this fairly easy hike through the forest. Good views and much less crowded. Unfortunately you can't cross the Inca Bridge, but it was a very enjoyable walk.

Although the bridge is a little disappointing, the walk to it gives glorious views. Make sure you go in fine weather and have a head for heights as it is very exposed.

Very cool hike at the top of Machu Picchu to get to the Inca bridge, not well traveled with some incredible views and beautiful scenery and birds. It was a nice little diversion from MP and the bridge is a very cool thing to see--I...More

Its a wonder how this bridge could have been build. The walk to the bridge is bit scary. It's safe to walk as long as you are paying attention. The walk is easy. But watch out of upcoming folks. Definitely a must see place. You...More

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
