A Travellerspoint blog

There's nothing quite like a 12 hour Sunday drive

The longest windiest drive of my life.

overcast 18 °C

So heres a map to show you just how far we have travelled already

Anyways to make it from our last destination to Carjamarca there is only one way and that's to take the back roads of Peru which pretty means a gravel or dirt road that dangles itself on the sides of mountains. So with this being our only option we hired a car as mini buses dont fit and headed off

The road we travlled along chiseled into the side of the mountain

Everytime we got to a bumb we had to get out so the car wouldnt belly out

We finally reached a destination and what a beautiful place it is by night.
