Yunkaypata & 2nd Course

two downhills with amazing views on the City of Cusco

The Tour

If you are up for an exciting off-road adventure in the mountains right outside Cusco, this tour is perfect for you. The Yuncaypata area, also called “La Escuelita” (the little school), is the starting point for a great variety of tracks that lead through wonderful landscapes back down into the city. Local downhill enthusiasts use them for training because you find a little bit of everything there: Fast dirt road passages, amazing views on wide colorful fields with typical agriculture and animals, puddles and mud holes, forest single tracks, optional jumps and rocky technical parts. Back in Cusco after two different rides, we finish the tour with a visit of a “Polleria”, where we enjoy one of the most typical Peruvian meals: pollo a la brasa – barbeque chicken grilled in an open coal fire oven, with freshly made potato fries and a salad buffet. Come and taste a double shot of adrenalin with Tasting The Road!
