Overview

This activity will give you the opportunity to learn more about the noble and beautiful Peruvian Paso horses, their differences and benefits as well as the importance of these within our culture. We’ll also discuss the history of the Cusco Valley. You’ll learn all this as you ride and relax in the company of our expert guides.

The tour will start by picking up participants at their hotels. We will then go to our stable in “Fundo Molleray” located 15 minutes from the airport in Cusco. We will show you our horses, give you a safety talk, and explain some details about the route. We will familiarize ourselves with the horses and, after a warmup, start our journey.  Each participant will have their own horse with full equipment for the trip, and after we familiarize ourselves with them, we will warm up and start our journey.

Historical Background: The Incas entered the valley from the south around the year 1200 AD. At that time, the Huatanay Valley and the surrounding area was inhabited by small tribes, some of whose names are known: the Sahuasiras, the Antasayas, the Huallas, the Poques, the Lares, the Alcavizas, and the Copalimaytas.

After visiting the valley, we will return to the lookout at Nueva Puna Cancha where we had our snack and then start back down the trail into the Valley. We will take a different trail down, which runs along the river. This narrow trail is the one that the legendary Ayar Brothers, from the Inca creation myth, used long ago. Along the way we will have a great view of the modern invasive forests of eucalyptus and also of native trees, such as chachacoma, queuña, and chilca. We will see native ichu grass, lots of birds, and, if we’ are lucky, Andean foxes and vizcachas (Andean rabbits). When we arrive at the stables, we will drive you back to your hotel .
