We pick you up at 8.30am from the Hostel and depart for Chachani in the 4x4 with bicycles 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 cycle.

Wishing each other a safe trip down we are ready to attack the challenge! The 4x4 follows behind us all the way down to be on hand if the need arises.

The gravel road
This first part of the cycle winds down through this unique alpine semi-desert, with the chance to see vicuñas, a member of the camelidos family. After 10 kilometres we come to the stoney road.

The stony 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 cross-country sand path
From the stoney road the cycle continues cross country down a sand path where adrenaline flows and the daredevils have a chance to shine. The sand offers a soft landing for the spills the more crazy cyclists are bound to have.

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.

Good luck!
