Abra Toroya – 4,750m

Departamento de Puno, Peru

 

This is not a very interesting climb on the old Puno to Arequipa road. The surface for the first 15kms of the climb from Tincopalca isn’t very good, but it improves for the final 10kms to the pass. At the top Volcan Misti and Nevado Chachani come into view. The descent from the pass is very gentle amidst quite dreary scenery.
