Adventure sports: Incachaca by bike (1 day, from Cochabamba)

This full day bike tour impresses with its scenic diversity. The route leads from the barren Andean highlands, the eastern foothills of the Cordillera del Tunari, down through the transition zone into the subtropical Yungas landscape with deeply cut river valleys and the dense cloud forests of the Carrasco National Park. It ends in Incachaca, a place of special natural charm, with impressive semi-subterranean waterfalls and natural pools with crystal clear water.

Itinerary:

We start in the morning in Cochabamba at an altitude of 2550m and drive in a private vehicle over a 3700m high Andean pass on the main road towards Santa Cruz. After about an hour's drive, we leave the main road and ascend via the village of Aguirre, past the mountain lake Laguna Yana Qaqa to the 3900m high Inka Chaka Pass, the starting point of our bike tour at 60 kilometers and approx. 1.52 hours from Cochabamba. From here we can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the valley of Incachaca and the densely forested mountain ranges of the Yungas. From here we cycle 20 kilometers downhill into the subtropical Yungas landscape of the Chapare. The route contains some narrow and not very technical sections, but it is still advisable to bring some experience on the bike. Again and again, clouds of fog obstruct the view. The route goes through dense mountain forests, which harbor a variety of flora, such as different species of orchids, bromeliads, and tree ferns. The region is also home to the elusive and endangered Andean spectacled bear. As you arrive to Incachaca at about 2300m, you have time to discover this natural place on a short circular hike, with its impressive semi-subterranean waterfalls called Devil's Throat, natural pools with crystal clear water and a deep gorge spanned by a suspension bridge. Afterwards you stop at a local restaurant and enjoy a meal of freshly caught trout before returning to Cochabamba in our private vehicle in the afternoon, where we will arrive around 6pm. (Driving time on the bike about 2h, 1600m ↓). (-/L/-) END OF OUR SERVICES
