Today's descent (la bajada de hoy); Peru

The search for singletrack continues…

Take one 35km climb. Thrown in a night at 4350m. Eat hearty morning porridge. Pack up tent. Then enjoy…

Descending through the Quebrada Ishinka, in the shadow of 6032m Tocllaraju.

One rock garden after another.

Some loamy, sandy trails…

… and a journey through the magical Queñoal forests of the high Andes.

The reward for a few hours of toil? 11.5kms (45mins) of sublime/rocky/grassy/sandy/forested singletrack. A real gem.

Leaving the Parque National Huascaran once more. Don’t forget to look back..


The Need to Know Bit:

The where? Bikepacking in Quebrada Ishinka, one of the many gorges that splinter across the Cordillera Blanca, Peru. Full post soon…
