Description

Jose took me on a fabulous five hour horseback riding tour to Pumamarca way up the valley from Ollantaytambo. The horses wee terrific - paso peruvian with great temperaments and smooth brisk gaits, and the exploration was breathtaking. We walked the last bit - after the horses gave up climbing - and Jose gave me a great understanding of the ruin and the Incan activities around it. A memorable day!

Best bits: Horses, scenery, and Pumamarca ruin
Worst bits: Forgot my sunscreen!
