Horse ride Darwin Route

After leaving our hotel, we head for route G-25 through El Toyo region, where we will pass through villages such as San Alfonso, El Ingenio and San Gabriel. From here we will arrive to a gravelled road to access the El Yeso reservoir (approx. 30 km). From the El Romeral sector we will access the entrance of the Yeso Valley park bordering alongside the reservoir, where our horses await us. After crossing the Yeso estuary and the meadow plains we will start a dizzy climb through the mythical Piuquenes pass at 4.000 Mt.
