CUSCO SACRED VALLEY TOP SECRET TRAILS

ONE DAY RIDES

ABOUT THE RIDE

After many explorations Holy Trails decided to restore 2 trails kind of close to one another. One has been renamed “Fairway to Heaven” and is very close to MORAY so we will get a great view from the top of this magical place and keep riding on red and white flowy berms all the way to the Vilcanota River. Our second run on this area is a trail close to the Maras Salt terraces that will keep you having fun without too much shuttling. We will have great homemade snacks and box lunch after our second ride.

Our last ride is a trail called “Deer Valley” and has a big drop. It was totally restored by the Holy Trails trail maintenance team late 2017 and has become our favorite. We will ride from a PARAMO type of land and get in to some unique UNCA Tree forests that only happen in some remote places in Apurimac and Cusco regions. This endemic specie of tree and forest are very hard to watch and appreciate since it is close to extinction due to deforestation and great wood qualities used since the Inca times to create sacred pieces as the wooden Kero (ceremonial glass). Finally, after 15 kms of riding on this trail we end next to the Vilcanota River.
