Itinerary for Huaypo Lake Ride

Sample Itinerary - subject to changes

Day 1: Ride to Huaypo Lake
This ride begins at a height of 2,828 meters above sea level in the town of Paucarbamba, where our hacienda is located. Upon your arrival at our facilities (around 9 am), you will receive instruction and recommendations before the tour.
We will start riding at about 10 am. Our riding adventure starts through the flat terrain on the valley floor, before going through some forests of native flora (Llaulli, Tara, Chachacomo, Tánkar, Queuña, etc) as well as exotic trees (Eucalyptus, Cypress, Pine) located on the banks of the Vilcanota River. We will slowly begin to gain height riding uphill towards the Salinas de Maras, where we will make our first stop to tour the salt complex.
We should arrive at the Salinas around noon. After a quick tour of the complex, will get back in the saddle, taking a steep path towards the picturesque town of Maras. There, we stop for lunch.
After overcoming the steepest part of the day, the high peaks will offer us their incomparable and privileged panoramic view. We should arrive at the charming Huaypo Lake at about 5 pm.
We will spend the night in a comfortable lodge.
Meals included: Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Lodge near Huaypo Lake

Day 2: Moray
After having appreciated the spectacular sunrise and having enjoyed a good breakfast, we will ride downhill towards to the town of Maras. On our way, we will cross extensive fields of potatoes, barley, oats, beans, and many other regional agricultural products. After having ridden for about two to three hours through picturesque ravines, we will arrive at a Catholic temple built in the 16th century (Ttiobamba), located just before the city of Maras.
We enjoy our lunch break in Maras.
Then, we will make our way to “Moray” where we will observe from a viewpoint the beautiful archaeological complex. Finally, it is time to ride downhill along a very narrow road until we reach a valley viewpoint. There, we make a last stop before heading back to the Hacienda .
Meals included: Breakfast & Lunch

Note: If you wish to extend your stay in Peru, we suggest to sign up for the Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Ride.
