Abra Huacullo

The road to the summit, located in the Wansu mountain range of the Andes, is totally unpaved. It’s called Carretera 111. There are some sandy sections and the road includes some hairpin turns, pretty dangerous. It’s very steep and the surface is often really bad.
Remember this is a mountainous area, climbing up a high mountain, with a notorius absence of oxygen. Altitude and extreme weather are always a factor. A few mine vehicles use this road. The pass road is 68.5 km (42.56 miles) long, running northwest-southeast from Rio Jeuñamarca to AR-105 road.
