Tour description provided by Viator

This is one of the most famous routes for mountain biking in Huaraz. We will get stunning views of the Cordillera Blanca and of the city. We will go through Wilcahuain, where we can stop for a visit. The route starts with a medium uphill. So acclimatization is recommended before the tour.
The starting point is the city of Huaraz and then gradually we go uphill the road that leads to the east (route lagoon Churup). On the way we will pass two rural villages, Unchus and Llupa. After traveling for approximately 1-hour, the road becomes uphill curves; which will take about 1.5-hour to cover the Quebrada Cojup (3900 m) which is the highest point of our journey. At this point we stop to eat some cereal, chocolates and drink some water. Then we descend along the road that leads to the ruins of Willcahuain (archaeological site Wari). On the way we can enjoy a very Andean landscape, with small villages, fields, pastures and shepherds pasturing their flocks.
