preparing for 3onTour!
Peru 3 - The Central 2

  
Perú
14. March 2014

From Huánuco we are climbing again - to the supposed to be highest (but for sure the ugliest) town of the world - Cerro de Pasco at an altirude of 4.300 meters.

Over a very nice plateau to La Oroya, and then onwards to Huancayo.

Afterwards a 3-week solo-Tour of Uli starts. Climbing 10.000s of meters to Ayacucho, Querobamba and finally to Puquio.

On a last pass i have to say good bye to the great mountains of Peru. And cycle down to the lowlands at Nasca.

Total number of pictures: 44
