A Hair-Raising Ride to the High Pass of Punta Olimpica

This has to be ranked as one of the most hair-raising bus ride in the whole of the Cordillera Blanca - running between Carhuaz and Chacas, the bus gardually ziz-zags it's way higher an higher along a badly-maintained dirt road  - way worst than the one in Llanganuco Valley until it reaches 4890m in elevation between the peaks of Contrahierbas (5900m) and Ulta (5875m) before dropping down to the more manageable Chacas at 3360m a.s.l.

Taken just after it passes the highest point we are looking here at the narrow dirt road that leads to Chacas. As recommended by a lady traveller from France whom I met in Cuenca in Equador, I took off here and walked my way back to Shilla - a walk that eventually takes about 6 hrs including many photography stops along the way.
