Bike tour Abra del Acay - Cuesta del Obispo

Bike tour Abra del Acay - Cuesta del Obispo / 2 Days 

This mountain biking trip is for those of you who love great scenery... and thrive on high adrenalin challenges.
From Salta we travel up through the Quebrada del Toro towards Route 40 and from there we climb up to the highest road pass in the whole of America: the "Abra del Acay" at 5,000 metres above sea level. This is the departure point for our first downhill mountain bike towards the town of La Poma.
Along the way we can pause for a breather and to see some marvellous natural rock formations like the Puente del Diablo ("Devil's bridge") and the remains of ancient cultures like the Graneros del Inca (Inca Mills).

On the second day we mountain bike down the road from Cachi, along the Cuesta del Obispo; a high adrenalin rush through some outstanding mountain scenery.
