Yantahuain – 4,231m

This pass is a day’s climb from Huaraz, or a very long climb up from the coast at Barranca. Turning off the paving near Conococha it’s a few short kilometers to the top. If you’re heading south, the road continues to Rajan, from where there is a mind-blowing 2300m descent to Cañon.
