Let`s share an incredible time biking through the rolling hills of the country side of the Sacred Valley. We will explore the colorful communities that surround Cusco. Tour the charming town of Chinchero by bike and then continue riding on dirt roads and rolling hills to Moray Maras. Catch fantastic views as you ride, of the amazing landscape.
Morning pick from your hotel and drive to the small town of Chinchero(3762mt/12,343ft), where we will enjoy a weaving demonstration using natural dyes at a local´s home. After, a cultural experience, we will hop on our bikes and ride on dirt roads enjoying the surrounding mountains and nature. We will cross the Huaypo Lake en route to the Moray agricultural terraces located on a high plateau (3500mt/11,500ft) dating back to the time of the Incas. It is believed that the Incas used these these circles to study the effects of different climatic conditions on crops. Thus, Moray was perhaps an Inca agricultural experiment station. We will visit the huge circles especially the center one which is still intact. You can lie down in the center and feel the energy through your body. From here we will bike down a windy dirt road going up and down to the Maras Inca salt mines (3380mt /11,090ft.) where the salty waters come from the side of a mountain and evaporates and fills into different pans. It is controlled by at least 300 families and is hand harvested without using machinery. Afterwards, continue biking downhill to Urubamba where our transport will be waiting to take us back to Cusco.
