Went with a local trekking guide for a much more informed understanding of the sites. While the adjoining museum is good there were no guides on site so having our own knowledgeable guide helped.

This is definitely an interesting site to see pre-Inca ruins of very different style/structure than other sites we visited.

Really nice ~1.5 walk from the center of Huaraz, and just outside of the ruins there's a beautiful mirador on a hill. Fascinating that such old structures are just outside of the city! If you've got a free few hours, I'd recommend it!

Personally, I found the experience of entering a 1200 year old long-house to be extremely compelling. The stone work is simply extraordinary and I think these ruins are somewhat under rated. OK - they do not match Machu Picchu or Kuelap in terms of 'wow'...More

We went one Sunday morning, catching an almost falling apart taxi. Once there, there was a small museum with some interesting information about the site and local history. The tombs were interesting to explore (although lacked information and were a bit samey) and the scenery...More

We took this walk for acclimatization right from our guesthouse in Huaraz. It was an interesting route through the outskirts of town and a view into real Huaraz life. The ruins weren't particularly large or interesting but enough of a destination to be worthwhile for...More

Easy part day trip to visit these small but interesting ruin areas. Take the collectivo bus up (if you can spare the 1.5 soles, ~40cents USD), then walk back to town to earn your ice cream. I wouldn't dedicate a day to make this trip,...More
