FROM CUSCO TO TITICACA

This is one of the best bike trips of Peru, starting in Cusco we will lead to Lake Titicaca, finding during the days a diversity of historical sites and best of all, some of best views of this regions.
The main trip is ride on dirt roads and some paths still used by local shepherds. We have chosen these tracks because they are far the main road traffic and because we will be able to enjoy the peaceful life of the Andean countryside.
At the end of each day, each port  is suggested to spend the night in different kinds of homestays: family lodges, basic bed & breakfasts and Andean communities houses.
