DESCRIPTION SACRED DOWNHILL CHACHANI:
Experience "The Sacred Downhill" with us. We'll start by driving you up to 4,800 meters, situated at the base of Chachani. From there, embark on a thrilling four-hour downhill bike ride. The terrain includes rocky, sandy, and diverse paths. Our support vehicle will accompany you throughout the journey, providing the option to hop in if you need a break. Along the way, take in the breathtaking views of Misti and the city of Arequipa.
We meet in your Hostal at 8.30am and depart for Chachani in the 4×4 with our full suspension bike on top. The 2 hour drive winds up through a windswept tussock mountain side. To the east is the majestic grandeur of Misti, a powerfully moving sight especially on a clear day. It is well worth a photo stop to capture the changing moods of the mountain. After this we arrive at the electricity station, the departure point of our downhill.
Wishing each other a safe trip down we are ready to attack the challenge! The 4×4 follows behind us all the way down to be on hand if the need arises.
The gravel road
This first part of the Downhill winds down through this unique alpine semi-desert, with the chance to see vicuñas, a member of the camélidos family. After 10 kilometres we come to the stoney road.
The stoney road
This is the most technically and physically demanding part of the journey. The track is through a wild and desolate landscape with many large stones to avoid and some gentle inclines.
The final descent
The paved road which descends towards Arequipa gives you the opportunity to feel the wind in your face and relax or be one of the Colca Canyon’s many condors!
Reaching the desolate outskirts of Arequipa this unforgettable cycle ends with a celebratory cerveza and a small snack before the short drive back to the city centre.
