On this half day ride we will meet at our ranch where you will get to know your horse and have some basic riding instruction before heading out on the trail. I will fit you with a helmet and pack your things into the saddle bags. Leaving the ranch we will ride through a rural part of the village, enjoying a priviledged viewpoint at traditional houses and agricultural fields from up on our horses. We will reach the Urubamba river and cross a suspension bridge, then climb a trail up to the Maras Salt Flats. We take the back trail which gives us an up close view of the entire site and I will explain the salt production which dates back to Pre-Incan times and is still active today. After visiting the site we will ride back down to the riverside to contnue along the visit the mysterious cave homes at Pichingoto and learn more about the peoples who discovered the salt source. We will ride down to the river bed to ejoy epic open views up and down the Sacred Valley before riding back to the ranch.
Il tuo host
I'm Kyd, Canadian born horsewoman and passionate traveler. I have settled in the Peruvian Andes and run my own small ranch here because I just love exploring the high mountains. I'm a horseback riding instructor, speak many languages and my horses are impecably trained, happy and healthy. I am a certified Equine Assisted Growth coach and hold all of my Wilderness First Aid certificates. I have lived in this area, exploring everyday for over 7 years and I can show you secret ancient sites and get you in direct contact with the local culture.
