A short route, but quite demanding.
Ankasmarca is an old Inca market from where two trails descend with fast and flowing singletrack sections, combined by other sections with big rocks and very tight and steep corners at the end; two trails that combine very well after having descended the classic Lares trail, as both joining in the village of Totora.
