Road to Yanama

Here are two videos of the road to Yanama. It's only about 70 miles or so between Huaraz and Yanama but it takes five to six hours to make the trip. You zig-zag up the mountains from ~10,000 feet to over 15,000 then back down to ~11,000. The mountains are absolutely beautiful. It takes you through Huascarán National Park (Huascarán is the highest peak in Peru and second highest in South America at 22,205 feet).

And here's a photo:
