This is arguably one of The Sacred Valley's most unforgettable rides. After over an hour of climbing along a combination of double track and singletrack, you'll begin an unworldly descent along an Inca trail that passes through ancient farmlands, narrow canyons, and down Inca rock steps. You'll eventually arrive at a viewpoint of The Sacred Valley that's worth taking a long break.

Arriving at the Inca Fort, be sure to dismount and respectfully enter the site and pay the entry fee.

Later, you'll find another epic piece of singletrack that descends to the town of Calca via the community of Sacllo.

Access Info

Best accessed via private shuttle but can also be accessed from the town of Chinchero.
