Route: Huaraz – Punta Olimpica – Chacas – Yanama – Yungay

“Isn’t it beautiful?”
The icy winds are slamming into my face, my lips are split, my toes are freezing cold and at over 4600 meter I am pushing my heavily loaded bicycle through deep sand.. I can’t see the beauty anymore. I’m alone with my thoughts…
