It’s a rare occasion that riders finish these two trails for the first time without saying, “I’ll Be Back!”…for more.
A day to let yourself be carried away by the rush of zooming through the Andes on bike! Our transport will carry us up to 4,461 m (14,635 ft.) of elevation to the famous Lares Pass, from where your imagination and two wheels can do the rest. Lares is a wide, pedal-pumper that gushes with flow, offering nice verticals, wall-rides, drops, jumps, and other natural features. There are a couple of ways to do this one: 1) forget the brakes and let gravity do the work, reaching up to 60 km/hr. in parts; or 2) take it easy and enjoy the unreal scenery. Both are good options! This descent ends in the Town of Calca (2,950 m; 9,676 ft.)
After a hearty lunch, our transport brings us to the Lamay Pass (Community of Sapactto), at 4,310 m (14,140 ft.), from where we’ll ride a ridiculously good singletrack that never fails to impress. The trail is narrow, fluid, and technical, with some intense verticals and rock steps. Along the route, we’ll be able to appreciate many small communities where the locals reside and many small farms full of native crops and livestock. This trail is a local favorite for both its technicality and enchanting scenery! At the end, we’ll drop in to the Town of Lamay (2,960 m; 9,709 ft.) to catch our breath before heading back to Cusco.
All of our Full-Day Rides are operated in privately arranged tours to guarantee the best experience for riders.
