Abra Yanashalla is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.689m (15,384ft) above the sea level, located in the Ancash department, in Peru.
The road to the pass is called Ruta 3N. It has been recently asphalted. It’s steep but wide. Sometimes there’s much traffic. The pass, located between the Cordillera Blanca and Huayhuas, marks the limit between Bolognesi and Huari provinces. Due its unique location and the climb in elevation over thousands of feet, and passing through remote areas, it is important when driving in these conditions to be prepared. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime and can sometimes block some sections of the road, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice. The pass is the highest point on the beautiful main road from Huallanca to Conococha. On the summit there are beautiful views into the mountains of the Cordillera Blanca.
