A must-do bike trail in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
It's undoubtedly the most famous mountain bike route in Peru and worldwide for the beauty of its landscapes, length and fluidity of the trail.
The trail starts at Abra Lares, 1 hour from the town of Calca (Sacred Valley); the descent begins in the moraines, formed by the defrosting of the peaks, There the freerides are the most outstanding and exciting.
This trail starts in the high Andean wetlands, which turn into a very wide path that allows the rider to test all his skills on the wallrides, canals and stone beds that are all along the route, which has a very friendly slope, even for those who are just starting out on mountain biking.
And despite all, the trail goes in a very impressive canyon, with some challenging rocky steps, and also loose rocks and wooden bridges, an amazing experience!
