2015-08-07 Espinar to Arequipa


  • Distance: 290 km (180 miles)
  • Max Elevation: 4680 m (15356 feet)
  • Min Elevation: 2329 m (7644 feet)
  • Ascent: 2964 m (9725 feet)
  • Descent: 4457 m (14623 feet)


After a chilly night I headed towards Arequipa. I decided that I could make the meetup in Arequipa for a ride hosted by Socopur KTM in Lima. Back when I was in Lima they told me they were meeting in Arequipa on the 7th for a Colca Canyon ride. Turns out they lied and the meetup was in Camana. Luckily I didn't decide to take the highway even though I was trying to cover some 300km. I ended up on an awesome dirt road through beautiful rock formations and even ended up passing some awesome ruins.
