Adventure Routes to Huaraz
To travel back in time, and have an adventure in the process, hop off the highway along the coast and follow a dirt road into the mountains. If there is a village at the end of the road, a colectivo or combi is sure to take you there.
But if you are in the mood for fabulous scenery and a rush of adventure, there are three wild rides to Huaraz — one from Casma over the Cordillera Negra, another from Chimbote through the famous Cañon de Pato, and a completely hairball, multiday overland route from Cajamarca.
