After spending 5 nights touring Machu Picchu and The Sacred Valley, I was off again on the road to Puno, Peru, on Lake Titicaca. I started off at before 6 am and would ride into the evening traveling over 550 miles (910 kilometers). I would travel through cities and villages such as Andahuaylillas, San Pedro, San Pablo, Arequipa, Moquegua, Cutimbo on my way to my final destination on Puno, Peru
After spending a full day and night touring Machu Picchu, Peru I was fortunate to tour the Sacred Valley with Peru Moto Tours! I started the tour at 8 am and was back in Cusco by 5 pm. Christopher and I went high up into the Andes and swept along single tracks in and out of villages through the Sacred Valley.
After spending a day touring Cusco, Peru and organizing my trip to Machu Pichu (which took some time), it was Machu Picchu Day! I left my home at 7 am and rode to Poroy Station where I would embark on my journey to Machu Picchu with Belmond Hiram Bingham train and tour. The ride was mostly through small towns and was a lot of fun, even though I had some weather on the journey.
After spending a rough night in Abancay, Peru I had a nice slow ride into Cusco, Peru which is where I would base myself for a few days for my trips to Machu Pichu and the Sacred Valley. It would take me over 4 hours to get to Cusco, Peru taking in around 128 miles (192 kilometers) mostly on the paved roads and hugging the Andes.
