Departamento de Cusco, Peru
A pleasant and easy climb from Quiñota on the road to Haquira. At the top is a sign with the name of the pass on it – an exciting rarity in Peru. The road surface is good and the descent on switchbacks to the bridge a long way below the nice town of Haquira is great fun.
