Horsebackriding is an ideal way to experience the spectacular landscapes between the Inca Complexes Saqsayhuaman and Tambomachay. You’ll be able to enjoy the amazing views of the mountains that surround Cusco towards the South Valley while crossing the old Inca road to Pucamarca and Huchuy Qosqo.
We will do the horseback riding in the upper part of the mountains around Cusco, crossing a little valley and an eucalyptus forest to enjoy an incredible view of the famous archaeological sites of this region: Qenqo and Saqsayhuaman. We will also pass by the X-Zone and the Temple of the Moon and will enjoy great views of the Ausangate, the highest snow-capped mountain in the region.
From 08:00 am to 12:00 noon:
We will meet at your hotel or at the Green Peru Adventures office and then drive you to the Ranch near Saqsayhuaman. Here, we will meet the wrangler who will accompany you during your adventure ride and then equip you with horses and helmets. Upon leaving the ranch, you will enjoy your ride until reaching the Temple of the Moon. From here, we will continue our 4 hour adventure ride over the hills of Cusco, enjoying the landscapes and finally visiting the Balcony of the Devil, a natural tunnel carved into a big rock by the water. Then, we will find our way back to the top of Saqsayhuaman from where you can walk down to Cusco or visit the site in case you bought the tourist ticket.
We recommend you to buy the General Tourist Ticket that allows you to visit 15 places, including the ruins of Cusco and the museums. Otherwise you can purchase a one day partial ticket which allows a one day visit of just the Cusco sites including Saqsayhuaman, Qenqo, Puka Pucara and Tambo Machay. This is in case you are not planning to visit any of the sites around Cusco.
If you don’t want to enter to the ruins, it is possible to take an optional way and to just enjoy the ride over the surrounding mountains of Cusco.
