Carretera 110

Carretera 110

Carretera 110 is a high mountain road located in northern Peru. Hair raising stuff ! There is absolutely no room for mistakes.

The road is 39km long and links the small town of Tingo, at an elevation of 1.950m (6,400ft) above the sea level, and Chachapoyas, a city at an elevation of 2.235m (7,657ft). The surface of the road is gravel. The road is not easy, though. Up, down, right, left all the time. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs. You might want to take this into consideration if you have passengers that don't like heights. Be prepared, this road is not for the faint of heart or ill prepared. One mistake can have serious consequences.
