Cusco Zip Line – Zip Line Cusco
CUSCO ZIP LINE or ZIP LINE CUSCO activity glides above the highlands of Cusco Peru. Also known as the eye of the Jaguar or Maras Moray Zip line, this is the longest zip line in the world. It is 2130 metres and is 6990 feet.
Sacred Valley zip line adventure uses a system of cables and exact points of trajectory depending on the elevation of the cables. It consists of pulleys suspended that can slide along smoothly with gravity. This gives a sufficient incline.
The Zipline adventure is located 35km (or 22 miles) outside of Cusco, an estimated 40 minute trip, in the village of Racchi. It is located in the Sacred Valley region and the middle of a natural paradise known as the Chinchero plateau, near the P’acchayoc canyon and in the shadows of the snow-capped peaks of Chicon and Pitusiray.
Cusco zip line has 4 different cables that extend for a distance of 600 meters ( or approximately 2,000 feet), from top to the bottom. The highest of which is at a height of 200 meters (or 700 feet) in the air.
First cable is very smooth so that the participant can start the ride with confidence and has a chance to become comfortable with the activity.
The second cable travels at a slightly higher velocity so that the participant can imagine the sensation of flying through the air.
Third cable is the longest when the participant has the ability to travel in various extreme positions if they desire, such as upside down, monkey-style, or whatever position you invent.
The fourth cable is the highest cable with the best and most beautiful views of the Sacred Valley, the P’acchayoc canyon, and the surrounding Andes Mountains.
