Description

After pickup in your hotel, your guide will make a briefing about the activity. Then, head to the ranch near Sacsayhuaman where you will meet your horses and muleteers.  Upon arriving at the ranch, guide will make a brief induction to know how to control the horses and be able to lead them safely. Horses will be selected according to your experience and mood. Start visiting the archeological place of the Temple of the Moon, a big hill with two caves inside it, probably used to evoke fertility during Pre Inca and Inca times. The caves contain altars and cracks in the walls that let in sunlight or more significantly moonlight that strikes the altars on certain nights.  Then, head to the “Inca Face” and finally the fabulous Devil’s Balcony or also called “Chacan”. Located on the backside of the Saqsayhuaman, this archaeological attraction and natural architectural heritage is a large rock with a spectacular view of a chasm in the middle. There is a window, a balcony overlooking the river that runs underneath rock. Below the balcony, the river goes through a huge cave towards the other end of the rock. Here, in this natural cave formed thousands of years ago, which was used as Inca Shrine, you will stop and taste a snack. In each of those places mentioned, your guide will stop to tell you a detailed explanation about it. Then, head back to the ranch and return to the city.
