Dec 4, 2013

The first - wonderful - leg of our route through Peru.

Crossing the border from Ecuador to Peru at Balsa. Heading to San Ignacio, then to the lower lands around Bagua Grande. Cycling along the beautiful river and gorge of Rio Utcubamba to Chachapoyas.

Visiting the interesting and great historic town of Kuelap. Afterwards cycling the spectecular road from Leimebamba to Celendin - with 1000s of meter of climbing and descending. Stunning!

Finally reaching the city of Cajamarca.

Total number of pictures: 52
