Great "off the beaten track" short hike
Feb 2020
For our second day at Machu Picchu we decided to do a coulple of short hikes away from the main site.
This was great. A little bit of uphill but nothing hard. About 10mins in the timber then you come to a registration hut. No cost, you just have to sign in and out.
For the next 20 minutes we walked along a track with the most magnificent scenery. Sheer cliffs and beautiful valleys. At some points the path is right on the edge, Don't worry, even if you are scared of heights the scenery will keep your mind off the drop and the path is comfortably wide.
The bridge itself is amazing. It is hard to imagine how they built the structure on a sheer cliff with a 600 -700m drop.The planks are there so the Incas could pull them out to stop people chasing them.
Well worth the little hike.

Exciting hike on a narrow ledge
Nov 2019
The hike up from Machu Picchu to view the Inca Bridge is not too strenuous. There are some good views of the valley from the hike.

The final few yards to get to the Inca Bridge are very exciting though as you walk on a narrow path to reach the bridge. The bridge itself is blocked off and you can only take pictures from a narrow opening.

Worth it
Feb 2020 • Couples
Gosh I don’t understand the negative reviews. This is a spectacular hike, a once in a lifetime! You hike part of the world famous Inca Trail and walk on a path built by Incas. They would send their people with their local goods to the bridge where they would trade their goods for other’s good.
The first part is steep and will provide some good cardio and the rest is mostly flat with INCREDIBLE views. Solid granite mountains and views to the river.
We saw every age group and it wasn’t crowded but we are here in the rainy season. Two days here and it rained for five minutes. Blessed.

Not really worth the trip
Dec 2019
So, you will walk about 15-20 minutes out of your main path, thinking that you are going to see - and walk over - some majestic bridge. Nope! This is a few wooden planks, placed on a narrow ledge. You cannot walk on this bridge (and frankly, you probably would not want to once you see that a small misstep will be your last, as you will plunge down who-knows-how-many-hundreds-of-feet. You get to walk about 15 minutes and then see this wooden "bridge" from a distance. There are better ways to spend your half hour at Machu Picchu.

I would say nice rather than "very good"
Sep 2019
Nice quick walk towards the bridge. Of course you can't walk on it or go any further (you can see the path going up the mountain). But it makes a nice photo. Nice view of the valley on the way. Absolutely not scary although they advise some people scared of heights not to go.

If you have time, do not hesitate to go to this place. It takes about 30 to 40 minutes to reach and come back. The way offers different views.

inca bridge
Sep 2019
Well, when you arrive at 6 am, from the bus from Agua Calientes at 5:30am. After you wait in line 30 minutes. there's probably several thousand people already there ahead of you, then you decide what's your next move. Sun gate, about 4 hours or more, a hike straight up, or Inca bridge, we are both 62 so our guide suggested Inca Bridge, smart choice, so off we go, we get there and wait a while, because the entrance doesn't open till 7, so you wait 30 more minutes more till the guard shack opens, then you sign your name going in and going out, just in case you fall off the narrow pathway into the valley thousands of feet below. When you get there, along with the other hundreds of people ahead of you, you take pics several hundred feet from the site as ITS NOT MEANT TO ACCOMIDATE THE THOUSANDS THAT GO THERE EVERY DAY, VERY SAD, OVER CROWDED TOURIST TRAP

Short narrow walk
Jul 2019
You have to do this short walk before continuing into the site itself because there is a"one way" system in operation and if you go past you cannot go back as the route takes you to the exit, there is no link back into the site. It takes about 15 mins and you sign in and out. There are areas where the drop is very sheer and the path is quite narrow (about 1.5m in most parts). You cannot get to the bridge itself, you have to view from a distance. It looks like a normal route that the Incas took because you can see where it continues on to. It is not a defensive structure because there are steps on either side built into the side of the wall. Get great views of the valley.
