Day 1 – Warm Up Guayllabamba Ecuador
We will meet in Quito and our car will take us to a Ranch that’s located inside the National Reserve Pululahua. Once there we will get on a Jeep for a ride that’s full of nature and amazing landscaping. In the ranch, our mountain horses will be waiting for us to take us through this volcanic crater scenery, and then we will get to know the trails of the Guayllabamba Ecuador Sacred Valley. Today will only be a warm-up ride, so that we know what to expect from this demanding trails, our horse and the saddle, while watching the crater and its history, the nature around us, wild orchids, traditional Andean agriculture, among others.
Day 2 – Sacred Valley
On our way to the Sacred Valley, we will see cloud-forest covering mountain slopes, deep gorges and much more. Before we reach the valley, we will go through a narrow passage of the Rio Blanco Canyon, and we will see the river, which means we are in the Sacred Valley. In this Valley, we will see coffee trees, fields of sugar cane and different tropical fruits. We will be staying in “Aguacatal” a remote, electricity free, lovely farm that offers us beds in a cozy wooden cabañas, they will be waiting for us with a welcome drink and a much-deserved home-made hot meal.
Day 3 – Ride back to the Ranch
From the back of our horses, we will be riding this valley that has been settled long before the arrival of the Incas, by cultures who were farming the steep difficult land, building temples for their gods and knowing the exact position of the equator line. Today’s ride combines steep adventurous climbs through dense vegetation with gallop stretches on mountain ridges with wide open views. We shall also take a look at mysterious 1300 years old stone-carvings from the Yumbo-culture. We’ll be crossing the crystal clear waters of Rio Blanco on horseback on our way back home to the crater valley. Hiking parts are necessary.
