Cones and Canyons: Peru Divide (P3A)
36 Feb 13 Cass Gilbert Latin America
Cones and Canyons is a high elevation route that connects Arequipa, one of the country's most appealing cities, with the rest of the Peru Divide. En route, it winds its way past the world's deepest canyon, before hurdling a medley of 5000m passes to a backdrop of white-capped volcanoes. With sufficient time to acclimatise, it can be seen as a wonderful standalone ride, or a highlight within the longer Andean Traverse.
