The tour Cycle Peru: Machu Picchu & Titicaca starts from Cusco and ends in Puno. It is a bicycle trip that takes 13 days taking you through Llachon, Pisac, Urubamba and 5 other destinations in Peru. Cycle Peru: Machu Picchu & Titicaca is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport and others.

On this tour we cycle between some of the world’s most iconic travel destinations: from the truly spectacular mountain top city of Machu Picchu and the high-altitude plains of the Altiplano to Cusco, the buzzing capital of the ancient Inca Empire. Pedalling past impressive Inca ruins like Sacsayhuaman, Pisac and Moray, our route hugs the Urubamba River as we cycle amongst 4000m peaks and learn about the country’s rich and fascinating history whilst staying with local families. Ending our tour on the shores of the vast Lake Titicaca, we visit the floating reed islands of Uros and discover the ‘folklore capital’ of Puno where we can stock up on hand-made souvenirs before flying home.

“On paper this looked like a potentially tedious trek up a long valley to look at some mountains and then back down the valley again. But the reality was very different. The trek in was wonderful with flocks of griffon vultures soaring close by us on thermals as we crossed the Nain Singh Pass, and then dropped down through mixed forest to the magnificent deeply-cut Gori Ganga river valley with tantalising glimpses of snow-capped peaks as we climbed up past occasional deserted villages towards Milam. From Milam the walk up to the glacier was magnificent, with Hardeol (7151m) and Tirsuli (7074m) stunning. Then back down to Ganaghar and up the Pachu valley to our wonderful spacious campsite with Nanda Devi, Nanda Devi East and Latu Dhura as the awesome back drop. Good to see the peaks and passes that Tilman and Shipton had pioneered in the 1930s. The trek back down to Munsiyari was quick, and the final day quite tough, but we were acclimatised and fit by then! So for 10 days we had the mountains to ourselves. No phones or internet. And no people ... just a few families bringing their sheep and goats down for the winter. Magic! PS One of our fellow-trekkers recorded sightings of 74 different bird species.”
