Downhill Mountainbike Chollay - La Arena
In the remote little village of Chollay in the Andean foothills of Huasco Province we begin our tour. By bicycle we ride on the edge of Chollay River, which – reaching the main valley – meets the Conay River and both form the Tránsito River
We descend through the valley of the same name also known as “Indian Valley” passing different villages and landscapes.
