Downhill biking through Yuncaypata + guided tour of ruins

Downhill at the Backyard of Cusco

There is an indigenous community very close to Cusco city known as Yuncaypata, this is an ideal place for downhill biking (intermediate level). During the biking, you will pass through the ruins of Puka Pukara, Rumiwasi and have a guided tour of both the Inkilltambo and Hatun Plaza archaeological sites.

This program is designed for people who have good experience in biking because certain parts of the downhill route are intermediate level; however, our guide is always willing to do the tour through alternative easy routes if needed.
