This tour is an alternative tour; come and share the experience of horseback riding in the Sacred Valley of the Inkas (Ollantaytambo), having the opportunity to enjoy beautiful views via differing Inka routes and trails. Discover culture as well as nature, mounting a horse, where you can enjoy an emotional and fun experience. You can sure that likewise this excursion is comfortable and safe.

Puma Marca is a citadel that is enclaved in the high point of a hill to the North of Ollantaytambo between the Patakancha and Yuracmayo Rivers; the citadel dominates a strategic site in which a privileged sight of both valleys can be seen. A grand mystery surrounds these impressionable archaeological sites – no one knows exactly when the citadel was constructed, neither do they know the reason why it exists. For some chroniclers, it could have been a control post that was destined to the limiting of the passage from the population that was found on the side of Antisuyo – one of the four regions in which the Imperial Inka Empire was divided. The site’s architecture corresponds to the Inkas, so it is assumed that Puma Marca would correspond to one of the first settlements of the Inkas in the Ollantaytambo area.

Before mounting our horses, our local guide will give us instructions and also indicate to us how to best control the horses. This excursion starts with horseback riding from Ollantaytambo towards the archaeological center; during the trajectory, we will have an impressionable view of the landscape and also be able to see some magnificent terraces – including a hydraulic system that surrounds the area. Puma Marca´s grand location allows visitors to enjoy the place and also find direct contact with the nature that surrounds this beautiful place.

Included: Horseback Riding Excursion to Puma Marca (horse, tour guide, safety equipment that includes helmets + a short practical class on horse riding and safety before starting the excursion).
