    Cañon del pato

    September 21, 2019 in Peru ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Today we left the coast of Peru to head to the Cordillera Blanca, the world’s highest tropical mountain range. The challenge is to make it through Cañon del pato. Up, up, up we go, the road is mostly single lane with areas to pass each other for oncoming traffic. The 54 tunnels are pitch dark, single lane and I did a lot of praying that no truck or bus will face us in the dark. Michael and Esmeralda made it through the 40 km stretch, while I am holding on to whatever I can when I see the cliffs plummeting down 1000 meters. But we arrived safe and sound in the cute mountain town of Caraz.
    We both need a drink while the daughters of our camp host check out the camper.
    Tomorrow we will get to check out some pretty amazing lagoons.
