This was the fourth time I descended Colca Canyon on a mountainbike.
received any kind of financial aid from the local authorities. Nothing is done to diffuse sports to the young people neither to create new touristic circuits in Cabanaconde.
All the events done were sponsored by private companies. None of these events In this event the downhill team was compound by Guillermo Rendón, John Medina Rendón, Edison “Chiqui” Gomosio and the dutch cyclist Esther Visscher.
Pablo Masías Nuñez del Prado, director of the TV program Pureq Runa was one of the guests of this important event.
The circuit goes from Cabanaconde and then it goes down to Soro area, which is a small communa inside Colca Canyon.
The views are really amazing and the views of the canyon are not the same as the ones seen on the area of the condor cross.
The trail we used to go down is a dirt road wide enough for a van or a small truck.
It´s not technical at all and you can go as fast as you can.
Words cannot describe the experience we had in this places.
It is a wonderful circuit. You can go downhill with your mountainbike until the bed of the river and then you can go walking to Soro or to Llahuar which is close. Mountainbiking and trekking. Fantastic.
Don´t hesitate and take this tour! If you really love nature and adventure this is the right option for you! Kodak time!
