The next pictures are from the Abra de Arapacheta another very high pass (4500 M +) that is on the road from Ayacucho to Pisco.
The weather was (for once) gorgeous and the views incredible, and obviously these pics don't do the views justice. But at least i tried.

Leaving Ayacucho behind



Yes, fat finger - but notice the colours
of the mountains

















Probably the top of the pass




And the descent to the coast begins
4500 M down in a few hours!
