Walking and Hiking

Although it is possible to walk from the city to the Monte Albán Archeological Zone this is not recommended, it is about two hours to walk and for much of that time it is through quite boring suburban areas of the city.  And of course hot during the day time when the sun is out.

However a great possibility is to take the local bus which costs only 25 cents American and takes you through the city to the bottom of the hill, then from there walk up the last part which is green and pleasant.

Alternatively if you have taken transport directly to the car park or bus park near the Site Museum and entrance gates then walking inside the Plaza and around the outskirts of the buildings is also a great tour with wonderful vistas.
