Como llegar a Sacsayhuaman

How to arrive to Sacsayhuaman by foot

By Cuesta del Almirante Street

You follow Córdoba Street until your reach Plazoleta Nazarenas, then take a left and go straight up Nazarenas and Pumacurco until you reach the end. You could also head by Cuesta del Almirante until you reach Ataúd Street, then take a left until Huaynapata, and then right. This route takes around 60 minutes. In my recommendations I have called this route “by San Cristobal.”

By Suecia Street

Walk up Suecia and turn right on Huaynapata and immediately a left up by Resbalosa until you reach Circunvalación. This route takes around 60 minutes too.

By Plateros Street

Walk up Plateros until your reach Saphy and then a right up the super steep Cuesta de la Amargura. You will reach Circunvalación. It takes approximately 60 minutes.

By car, bus or taxi

If you go by car; drive up Suecia until you reach the Salesiano School, then take a right and continue by Circunvalación. If you prefer, you can also go by Plateros strait to Saphy until you reach Circunvalación. It will take approximately 10 minutes. If you take a taxi, bargain the price. You can be taken for S/. 6 and then you can return walking down. Now, if you want to save money, take a bus that departs towards the Sacred Valley from Puputi Street (S/. 3 one way.) It will take around 15 to 20 minutes.
