  • ITINERARY
  • INCLUDES

At 8.50am We take private transport to the Ranch near Qenqo and get set up with our horses and meet the horseman who will walk with you through the extent of the trek until Saqsayhuaman. Departing from the ranch takes you to the ruins of Qenqo. You will get a wonderful view of the ruins, but if you would like a closer inspection, then you need the tourist ticket. The horseman will mind the horses while you explore. After passing those ruins you will follow a small dirt path, alongside a road, up to the next site, Puca Pucara, which transelates to “The Red Gate”, and is called that because it was used as the controlled entrance to the city of Cusco in the days of the Incas. You will pass just by the ruins as you are on your way to Tambomachay, which was something of an Inca “bath house”, and was also used for the worship of water. Then you will begin your return , passing through a eucalyptus forest on the way. Finally, before you reach the ranch, you will pass by the famous Inca temple, Saqsayhuaman, which is where the Incas worshiped lighting. Our service ends at Saqsayhuaman so you can take as much time as you want at this extensive and most spectacular site.

Note - Tourist Ticket
In addition to the tour price, you must purchase a tourist ticket. A full tourist ticket costs s/130 or s/70 (nuevos soles) for students with a valid ISIC card. The full tourist ticket is valid for 10 days and allows entry to the majority of the Inca sites around Cusco and the Sacred Valley. This is a better option if you plan on also combining the city tour, or visiting any of the archeological sites outside the Sacred Valley in Cusco. An alternative option is to buy a partial tourist ticket which is s/70. This is valid for 1 day and will allow entry to all of the sites on the Sacred Valley Tour.
