Experience what Cusco and the Sacred Valley offers with a bolero truistic (tourist ticket) which you can use to visit Puka Pakara. Cusco is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a vibrant history and sites to explore. Highlights in the Cusco region include Moray, Pisa, Sacsayhuaman, Ollantaytambo and Tambomachay.

Puka Pukara is near a few other Inca sites such as Sacsayhuaman and Tambomachay and well worth exploring them on on your travels in Peru. The area features interesting archaeology and offers amazing views of the Andean mountains. Evidence of some of the military ruins remain at Puka Pukara with several intact walls and structures in the area. The site itself has three levels, featuring aqueducts, baths and interior squares. The surfaces have uneven floors, so be sure to wear suitable footwear! 

The site itself is comparatively small and visitors should make the most of it be combining it with a trip to nearby Pisac. Highlights in Pisac include an interesting artisan market which takes place every Sunday and weaving villages. Pick up a souvenir or two from a wide choice of vendor selling an array of unique items, from trinkets, scarves, alpaca jumpers to ceramics, Andean cups and plenty more!
