Peru 2 - The Central

  
Perú
Feb 7, 2014

The long - especially when it comes to terms of time - stretch from Cajamarca to Huánuco.

The first stretch south through the mountains to the coast to Huanchaco near Trujillo - via Cajabamba and Huamachuco.

After a long break (relaxing in nice Huanchaco, sickness, 2 weeks visit of relatives in southern Peru) we continued cycling. Just a short 100 km ride on the Panamerican, then turning east to Caraz via great dry canyon landscape. Fascinating!

Then the one-way road up and down to Laguna Parón - great views on some 6.000 meters peaks!

Along the stunning Cordillera Blanca - passing Huaraz - to Pachacoto. The turnoff to the great road crossing the Parque Nacional Huarascán and the Cordillera Blanca. Great!

Then from Huallanca to Huánuco - via La Unión and Tingo Chico.

Total number of pictures: 48
