We will take private transport to the Ranch near Qenko early in the morning, get set up with our horses and meet the horseman who will walk with you through the trek. You will enjoy incredible landscapes with unforgetable views of the mountains, snow-peaks, Andean valleys and get the insight into the life of the people living here.
You will pass through the areas of light forest as you continue your way towards the ruins of Cusilluchayoc, which is a smaller, but still very interesting Inca site. Finally we will visit X zone after which you will then begin your return to the ranch. This time we will take a different route and pass through the most famous and popular Inca site, Saqsayhuaman. We will take you to the ranch and then you can walk back down to Cusco via San Cristobal. It will take you about 25 walking minutes and offer you perfect photo opportunities over Cusco from the church of San Cristóbal and plaza. Taxi is another option to get back to the city of Cusco.
