The hiking is through a steep path with steep steps that leads you to the top of the mountain in where you can see constructions and agricultural terraces perfectly attached to the mountain.

From the top of this mountain you have a privileged and complete view of the whole Inca citadel, for these reasons it is attributed an astronomical religious function and at the same time a point of control.
