How to explore the Sacred Valley in Cusco New Style
There are more options to discover the stunning Sacred Valley of the Incas than sitting in a full and slow bus while staring out of the window. Those traditional tours are ok but give few options to interact with Cusco’s beautiful nature and the friendly people. One of the most diverse and fun tours to explore the Sacred Valley New Style, is going on a QUAD TOUR in Cusco.
Also for those you’ve just arrived to Cusco, a tour with a quad might be the perfect first impression of the valley, as you get a quick overview of the magnificent scenery outside of Cusco, while having FUN. And for those you’ve been spending more time in Cusco…… as the vehicle does most of the work, a ride is a great choice in order to relax your muscles after long hikes like the Inca trail or Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu. While travelling through Peru, change is essential. A ride on a quad delivers more freedom than you think and while experiencing a nice adrenalin rush.
Quad Tours with Dos Manos Peru either start in the morning or in the early afternoon. The starting point with the shuttle is in Cusco; from here you depart to the small town of Chinchero, located not far away from Maras and Moray. Maras are the famous salt mines which can be visited for S/.10. In Moray the notorious experimental Inca terraces require the Boleto Turistico. The extensive ticket is generally recommended while visiting Cusco or the Sacred Valley.
After a quick instruction, the tour starts through the beautiful and astonishing Sacred Valley. During the trip, which has a duration of around 6 hours in total, you will spend approximately 4 hours just riding the quad, which is neither exhausting nor boring or monotonous. While driving mostly off-road, the distinctive types of soil make the drive more exciting. This is truly and unforgettable trip! The first bigger stop is at Moray which is followed by a beautiful journey to Maras. There is enough time to discover the salt mines of Maras and learn about them.
With the quad you will encounter the flora and fauna of the Sacred Valley, far away from tourism. You will enjoy Cusco’s unique nature and landscape, while going on an adventure with friends and fellow travellers in Peru.
Next to the Inca trail, this is a crucial expedition which everyone should include in their bucket list for travelling in Peru!
