The ride begins at our Ranch, located in the small community of Pichingoto in the district of Maras, where we will review basic riding instructions. Then, we will start the tour by following a pre-Incan path that ascends the side of a mountain leading us to the Salineras salt mines. We will tour the salt mines, learn how the salt is produced from the 3,000 pools, and observe how the salt is collected by hand, using artisanal techniques from pre-Incan times. We will then return along the same trail back to our ranch in Pichingoto. Back at our Ranch, you will have the opportunity to enjoy some delicious homemade refreshments and rest in the hammocks before you return to your accommodation.


Entrance ticket to the Pichingoto community and Salineras salt mines, refreshments, bilingual guide, porter, and safety helmet.
Transportation to/from the Ranch is NOT included.
