Our day in Machu Picchu started out rainy and foggy so our guide suggested the short, narrow and lovely hike to the Inca Bridge. It was away from tourists and a different view. Bring hiking boots. The path is rocky and slippery with few guard...More

We decided to visit the Inca Bridge. We expected a little bit more (you cannot access the bridge any longer) but once you're at Macchu Piccu why not bring a short visit.

As part of our visit to Machu Picchu in September 2018, we took the trail to the Inca Bridge. It wasn't too hard of a walk and was totally worth it! All Inca construction is incredible and the bridge didn't disappoint! How they were able...More

30 minutes round trip, not too many hikers go there so you won´t be confronted with hordes of people. It´s neat to see the bridge.

This bridge, dating from the time of the Incas, is impressive as it clings to a sheer rock wall hundreds of feet high. the hike here is brief, so it's a good addition to sightseeing at the MP ruins, if you have the time.

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.

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

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
