Downhill the Wizard & the Shepherd Cusco

Downhill the Wizard & the Shepherd Cusco

Our two downhill adventure routes, The Shepherd “El Pastor” and  The Wizard “El Brujo”, are located in the surroundings of Cusco. These two mountain bike feature short singletrail paths, aggressive, vertical paths, stone gardens, and advanced level stairs.

Our first mountain bike starts near the Huacoto community on paths through eucalyptus forests from 3,800 m. to 3,300 m. where the San Sebastián district is located. This route takes between 40 to 30 minutes of full downhill depending on your riding level.

After finishing the El Pastor “the shepherd”, we will board our transportation to head to the Occoruro pass at 4,250 m. where the El Brujo route starts on a horseshoe path with stairs, vertical sections until 3,300 m.

Both singletrails are categorized as technical enduro for experienced cyclists, starting from 4,000 to 5,000 m.; many tourists experience altitude sickness, so it is recommended to do mountain biking after the second day to acclimate.

For these routes, we have the best professional mountain bike (full suspension), best equipment, best mountain biking route, and the best adventure guide in Cusco.

Daniel did such a great job on the tour and was a very patient teacher since it was my first time mountain biking!

Good guide! Took a route out of Cusco, climbed up past Puca Pucara and then did some trails back into town. The location is tricky. It is on the other side of the plaza inside a courtyard on the second floor. Pictures added to help.

I had a wicked day doing 3 separate tracks, the Wizard, The Shepherd and Huayllarrocha with Danny. He is very friendly and has great experience on the tracks! I would do this again!

Hicimos la ruta Moray - Maras con Daniel. Fue bastante segura con su apoyo, tuvimos unas vistas hermosas de Moray, Maras y los bellos paisajes que los rodean. Recomiendo a Daniel y a Buho Tours para este y otros tours que hace en la bella ciudad del Cusco

I will only be booking my future Mountain bike tours with Buho!! Daniel took me on my first ride, he owns and operates Búho. Not only is he an exceptional rider but extremely hospitable, fun to ride with, and funny. Our ride lasted 3.5 hours and included free orange juice, stops at archaeological sites, a stop at an Alpaca farm, incredible views of the country side and city, not to mention some of the most fun single track I’ve ridden outside of my home town. Definitely a repeat customer.
