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.

How to get to our meeting point?

🚀 You can take a taxi or Uber: The average cost is 12 Soles, remember that this is the total price, which means if you are three people, each one will pay 4 Soles.

🚀 You can take public transportation system: Go to the Puente Rosario bus stop (in front of the Qarmenqa hotel), at this stop, take Cristo Blanco local bus company and get off at the Tambomachay bus stop. The bus ride costs an average of 1.50 Soles pp and lasts about 35 minutes.

The following itinerary can change due to weather issues, strikes and the tour guide’s decision.

  • We start outside the archaeological park of Tambomachay and Puka Pukara
  • We start the bike-ride on a paved road until we reach the detour (dirt road) that will take us to the community of Yuncaypata
  • Once we have passed the Yuncaypata community we have two options:
    1. Follow the dirt road (recommended for everyone)
    2. Choose a steep narrow trail with ramps (recommended for experts)
  • We normally choose to continue along the dirt road, but if you are an expert, we will take the narrow steep trail
  • Next, we will continue cycling until we reach the archaeological complexes of Inkilltambo and Hatun Plaza, at both sites, there will be a small guided tour
  • The last part of this bike tour includes several downhill curves over dirt road until we reach the San Sebastián district (near the statue of the Condor)
  • Note: If you want a private bike tour, we can adjust your itinerary


You can cancel the tour up to 48 hours in advance; otherwise, a fee of 50% of the cost of the tour will apply.
