Getting to the Ranch

Pichingoto Community - Maras - Urubamba - Cusco - Peru

The Ranch is located just outside of Urubama (1 hour from Cusco) in the small community of Pichingoto. Pichingoto is a small village of about 60 families, half of which live across from the Ranch. The location of the Ranch offers you the advantage of a better climate, lower altitude (2,800 meters above sea level) and a calmer environment than the main city of Cusco.

Directions from Cusco to Salineras Ranch:

Take a taxi to Pavitos Street ( transportation service to Ollantaytambo) Minibus (which carry 8 passengers) to Ollantaytambo -fees should range between 8 to 10 soles. If you take a regular car for 4 passengers, the fee is 12 soles. Tell driver that you get off at Tarabamaba (Tunupa Restaurant exit). Once you arrive in Urubamaba, calculate four more kms.before they drop you off. Cross the highway and follow dirt road. You are going to take one right and then one left before reaching the bridge. Take a right a soon as you cross the bridge and walk about 400 meters to get to the ranch. Total distance from the highway to the ranch its about a 1.5 kms. Happy Trekking!!
