Day 12. June 1.

one night in Caraz. On the rio santa. We could follow the river on a main highway but instead we opt for a marginal road that goes through the foothills climbing passes and following ridge lines for about 80km.

Santo toribio. Last town and lunch before the climb begins.

The route we picked climbs a whooping 9,000ft from the valley floor.

chocho and ceviche for lunch
Camp. 1,500 more feet of climbing to the pass.

9grand in one day! Didn’t happen. Great camp spot, final good bye to the high mountains.
