Tipón on the south-eastern route from Cuzco, is one of the most interesting samples of agricultural terracing and water management developed by the Incas. Still today, water is rushing though the channels and wide terraces - masterpieces of walls - are in perfect condition. Several sourrounding ruins are excaved, and many many more are visible below the soil. Access with BT (boleto touristico).
A taxi from ruins to main road is more expensive then the opposite direction - try to agree your driver will wait for you. Walking down to the main road takes around 45min. There, you can take one of the cheap + frequent collectivos to Cusco.
The village down at the main road is famous for restaurants offering grilled cuy (guinea pig). It tastes mostly like chicken, has much less meat but is more expensive and difficult to eat. If you want to, you can have a look into the kitchen where cuy for the next day are prepared and collected in big bowls.
