ELEVATION PROFILE

ITINERARY

We will depart from your accommodation in vehicle to the Piuray Lagoon, located in the District of Chinchero, near the Sacred Valley of the Incas. In Piuray, we start our tour on the electric mountain bikes with pedal assistance, through a flat land bordering the lagoon.

After almost 40 minutes, we will take a detour up the mountain, for which you will notice the great help provided by the bikes and thus be able to reach the summit which should take us an hour. Once up, we will have a stretch of almost 3 hours that combines descents, plains, and moderate ascents, passing first by the Qoriqocha lagoon and then by peasant communities at 4000 meters above sea level, along with herds of alpacas and llamas that roam freely in the countryside in the company of their shepherd.

Our tour ends at the Qorao Peasant Community, where our vehicle will pick us up to take us back to our lodging.
