Without a doubt, this spectacular one-day mountain biking excursion across Cusco ́s High Plateau and through the famous Sacred Valley of the Incas is an experience you certainly won ́t want to miss! It ́s almost all flat terrain with slight, smooth and rather easy uphill slopes, as well as fun down-hills you won ́t have much difficulty to handle, especially if you already have some mountain biking experience. And even if you don ́t, but have previous leisure biking experience, feel free to join the group and build your own as you go.
This is a wonderful one-day mountain biking tour that starts in Cusco, with a transfer on our private transportation vehicle to the village of Chinchero, on the high plateau overlooking the Sacred Valley.
From there, we’ll start biking across rolling hills and colorful crops, towards Moray’s Incan Experimental Agricultural Center, composed of great natural cavities the Incas had taken advantage of to build under-ground level concentric circular benched terraces which they used for experimental agriculture.
Afterwards, we ́ll be riding to the village of Maras, where we’ll stop for lunch. Afterwards, in the afternoon, we’ll ride down to the Maras’ famous Incan Salt Mines, still in use today, where we will stop for a visit. Then, we ́ll pedal down to the Sacred Valley where we end our biking adventure and go back to Cusco.
In total, the Mountain Biking trail has a length of 35 km of single track paths, passing through small Andean villages, with fantastic views of the Sacred Valley.
