This route is one of the newest discoveries of epic trails that start high in the mountains of Cusco and descend to the city.
El Pastor starts at 4300 metres above sea level, from the top of a mountain that we call "Top of the World" and drops down to 3300 metres , 8 km of pure technical flow.
It starts on a open and exposed trail, from where you can see the whole city of Cusco; and it goes into eucalyptus forests with many very fast and fun curves. The El Pastor route is characterised by all kinds of obstacles and technical parts.
