This is one of the classic ascents in the Sacred Valley. Start on the Ollantaytambo side of the bridge and follow the very smooth, runnable trail up to the Inti Punku (Puerta del Sol, or Sun Gate) at ~3,900m (12,800 ft). The route climbs almost 1100m (3600 ft) in just over 8km (5 miles).

One can continue on upward to the (un-named) summit above the Inti Punku at 4,430m for a separate FKT.
