Abra Tisco – 4,813m

Departamento de Arequipa, Peru


The initial part of this climb is often on a bad surface and there are a few steep sections. There is virtually no traffic though and as the scenery is nice it’s pleasant enough. At the top of the pass there is a junction and if you go left (signposted Tisco) rather than carrying on straight to Espinar (Yauri) the road climbs a bit higher. Keeping to the main road, the descent brings you to the Condoroma dam on the Rio Colca.
