Central Highlands

At the moment I am cycling in the remote and rocky Central Highlands in Peru. The mountains are steep, the valleys, lonely, and the roads, narrow and carved from the side of steep mountains. The elevation of the road is between 2200m to 4000m.

For the first time since the beginning of this trip nine months ago, I am experiencing summer. When there are no clouds, the sun is intense and it is hot, literally, blistering hot. Due to the heat, I have got heat blisters on my both arms and the skin is peeling off. And there are still 800 more kilometers to go in the Central Highlands. Rainy season is about to start so I am cycling long hours every day to cover as much distance as possible.
