Biking Chinchero – Moray – Salineras 1d

1 Day 35 km 2800 masl – 3762 masl easy Cusco – Chinchero Tarabamba – Cusco

A full day mountain bike tour with visits to archaeological sites of Chinchero, Moray and Salineras.


We pick you up from your hotel. It takes about 1 hour in a private vehicle to reach the start of this tour in the village of Chinchero. We will cycle to Archaeological Park of Moray passing the lagoon of Huaypo on the way. We stay there for about 20 minutes to enjoy the beauty of nature and the unusual Inca terraces. The next part of the tour is very attractive because of the rolling hills. Continuing our trip, we arrive at the village of Maras for a tasty picnic lunch. After lunch there is an hour of downhill ride through the Andean countryside to the terraces of salt pans below Maras (with an optional tour) and then further downhill (approximately 40 minutes), arriving in the Sacred Valley (Pichingoto, Tarabamba), where we end our magnificent bike tour at approximately 4:30pm. A transport will be waiting for us there to take us back to your hotel in Cusco.
Total biking time is approximately 6 hours.
