Tipon, Cusco

4.7
Admire the sophistication of Incan engineering when you travel to Tipon. The ancient civilization once used this temple complex to worship water, the element of central importance to their culture. Some also postulate that it served as a park and for irrigation purposes. Terraces, fountains, and aqueducts run throughout the complex with water still flowing through most of them, imparting a serene atmosphere. Take the Inca trails around the complex to get a good look at the structure. The attraction doesn't tend to get crowded, so you can enjoy your visit at your own pace. Put Tipon on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Cusco driving holiday planner.

  • A lot of tourists haven't even heard of it, much better to go there and see every hydraulic system created by the Incas for irrigation. Go enjoy it.
