Day 1: Full Day

We pick you up at 8:00 am from your hotel in Cusco. Then we transfer you to the rancho, located in the Sacred Valley (Maras). At the rancho, we will meet our horses and give you an explanation about the premises and an introduction of our horse riding courses led by an experienced instructor. After lunch, we will depart towards the picturesque village of Maras. Then we will visit the salt platforms of Salineras (Inca times), still being used by the locals to extract salt from the mountain spring water. There, the salt water is channeled through an impressive irrigation system and left to evaporate in the sun. Continue 2 hours climbing and riding the horses (1000m) to reach the hights of the Andes. At above 3750m, the stunning scenery and the snow-capped mountains of Chicon, Veronica and Salkantay, will offer an impressive view. Cooling products was achieved by using a genius system of underground air-circulation. Ride to Lake Huaypo, where you will have box lunch with spectacular scenery of snow-capped mountains, wildflowers and beautiful mountain lakes. Ride to the Moray terraces, tan area which served as an experimental agricultural station for the development of different crop strains, using the climates of different ecological zones. There are no great ruins in Moray to impress visitors. Moray is more for the contemplative traveler with an affinity for such phenomena as the Nasca Lines. From Moray, we come back down to the Valley base. After riding, we come back to the rancho. At 4 pm, you will go back to Cusco.
