To Huaraz

When we were in Cali Colombia we met a guy who traveled to Peru and recommended Huaraz as a destination since there are many natural attractions with white peak mountains and off-road
tracks to enjoy so we decided to visit on our way to Lima.

We started the day on the Pan-American highway then started down an off road track towards Huaraz. we then caught a bridge and crossed over to the main route which after about 30 km turned into an off-road track. all the way until about 90 km from Huaraz that it was asphalt again.

We are getting used to stopping for lunch at local establishments and so we had a break at a local restaurant before reaching Huaraz

We estimate that we rode almost 120 km off-road today so we decided to take a break in Huaraz tomorrow and have a small city tour and tend to the bikes.
