Program Itinerary

Day 1:

At 8.30 am meet at your hotel. We take private transport to the Ranch near Qenko and get set up with our horses and meet the horseman who will walk with you through the extent of the trek until Saqsayhuaman. Departing from the ranch takes you to the ruins of Qenko. You will get a wonderful view of the ruins, but if you would like a closer inspection, then you need the tourist ticket. The horseman will mind the horses while you explore. After passing those ruins you will follow a small dirt path, alongside a road, up to the next site, Puca Pucara, which transelates to “The Red Gate”, and is called that because it was used as the controlled entrance to the city of Cusco in the days of the Incas. You will pass just by the ruins as you are on your way to Tambomachay, which was something of an Inca “bath house”, and was also used for the worship of water. Then you will begin your return , passing through a eucalyptus forest on the way. Finally, before you reach the ranch, you will pass by the famous Inca temple, Saqsayhuaman, which is where the Incas worshiped lighting. Our service ends at Saqsayhuaman so you can take as much time as you want at this extensive and most spectacular site.

    "Bad"
    My wife and I often disagree on hiking, and horses are a great compromise. We went on a day tour to Devil’s balcony with Cusco Horseback Riding and were impressed with the professional guides and the well trained horses. I felt like I could take off on my own, that’s how well the horses behave (note: don’t take off on your own)
