For us, this is the best downhill mountain bike that can be found throughout the region. Not only because of its vertiginous route but also because of the incredible landscapes that are appearing and changing rapidly as we descend.In approximately 60 kilometers of route, we will descend 2,500 meters of height! Yes.. 2,500 meters high!This mountain bike is for all tastes: those who prefer to do it slowly and taking advantage of the panoramic points to take good photos and enjoy the best views can do so, and those who seek speed and live the adrenaline find in this route an unforgettable experience!!!
Day 1 - MTB Abra del Acay The road has narrow and steep sections, but also has sections that allow you to gain more speed and get carried away by the adrenaline.It is suitable for all tastes. Those who want to challenge themselves technically and enjoy the activity itself, find this descend as a very fast and fun dowhill.For those who prefer to take it easy facing an unique challenge, such as crossing through the Andes mountain range at almost 5000 meters high by bicycle, will find an unforgettable experience...Each curve offers an incredible new view; each photo is an indelible memory. On the way you will find guanacos, vicuñas, chinchillas, suris, and further down to the valley there are llamas grazing in the green meadows ... it seems to be a safari more than a bike trip!!At the end of the descent we will have a picnic and continue on our 4wd to the town of Cachi where we will spend the night.Cachi is a picturesque colonial town, where it's worth going out for a walk, sitting in the square and enjoying its charm.---Day 2: Tour Cardones National Park & Downhill Mountain Bike Cuesta del Obispo Travelling time: 3 hours approximately In the morning we will start with our excursion.
