Full description

You will be picked up from your hotel at 8am and will head by private transport out of Cusco for about 1h30 until reaching the village of Chinchero - Cruzpata at (3650m/11975ft). From there you'll get your biking equipment and after going over a few safety procedures, the ride will begin!During the first part of the ride, there are a few up- hills and some nice downhills with optional single-tracks for those who like it a bit more technical. The scenery is unforgettable with excellent views of the Veronica Mountain range. The first main stop will be at the Incan agricultural testing site of Moray (3500m/11482ft) and we'll take a break here to catch our breath and explore the area. Continuing the ride we'll arrive to Maras (2900m/9514ft) riding to the crystal-white terraces of the pre-Incan salt mines and then continue on the best downhill of the day - a 30 minute downhill on a llama path ending on the bank of the Urubamba river in a place called Taraybamba (2650m/8994ft). Here we finish the tour and return to Cusco. This experience is absolutely gorgeous for those are looking to visit famous sites in an alternative way.
