Day 1 Pachar to Cachiccata Full Day Mountain Biking
After being picked-up in Ollantaytambo, transfer 20 minutes to the "Devil's Turn" in Pachar, driving through the mountains, admiring a combination of Andean landscapes, local culture, and traditional villages. After the briefing, ride on a trail following the Urubamba River, the sacred river of the Incas all the way to Pachar. From here, descend along a portion of the ancient Inca Trail that passes through farming fields and Inca terraces until we reach the Inca bridge that will take us into Ollantaytambo. Continue to the Andean village of Cachiccata, a picturesque community with an Incan quarry that produced the stones to create the fortress in Ollantaytambo. Take a break to visit a local development and reforestation program run by a local organization and have lunch at a community restaurant. After we are re-energized, hop back on the bike for a three hour ride to Chillca, where the van will be waiting to transfer back to Ollantaytambo.
This trip is approximately 7 hours total with 5 hours on a bike. The difficulty level is easy on dirt roads and trails with more difficult routes available for experienced riders.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
