Description

(ours: 3.90 m height, 2.50 m width, 9.40 length, 4.20 wheelbase)

As we didn’t have any information about this part of the street for big rigs, please see below …

In total it was extremely challenging and beautiful at the same time. The streets were tight and narrow, the rocks were big, the mountains were steep, the landscapes were stunning, and we didn’t expect that many curves. We had dry season, no rain and nice weather. We would highly recommend not to go with lager rigs than ours. As we sometimes had to reverse twice when going around thigh corners.

Leymembamba – Celendin (157 km, 7 h)
Beautiful landscape. Very narrow street. Steep slopes. Almost paved all the time, but just one track. Attention of approaching cars, trucks and busses, not everywhere is space to overtake. The second part after the river/bridge is still difficult and extremely narrow – especially the first part. Attention of the ropes of the bridge, height should not more than ours.

Santiago de Chuco – Estacion Chuquicara (370 km, 17 h)
Spectacular landscape and streets. Paved, but narrow as well. Streets tight at the slopes. You can see it from far away like a snake. Very tight corners, we mostly needed two tries in the first part down to the river. Villages are narrow as well.

This road is fine. Mostly paved and very smooth. If it’s the dry season, this is a great drive. If it’s the wet season…watch out.

Report Check-In

I’m not sure which road the previous post is referring to between Huamachuco and Mollepata that is paved, but we left Huamachuco today and took the 3N (paved) to 116/115 (both unpaved) /117 (paved) then back to the 3N which was dirt and gravel (deep at times) the entire way to Mollepata.
