We finally cross into Peru on day 95! We’ve gotten advice that Northern Peru is quiet dangerous for overlanders. Poverty + Corrupt Police = Potential Robberies. So, we are travelling faster through northern Peru until we can get clear of the dangerous zones.
After 2 days of driving 800 km, we finally make it to the mountain ranges of Huascarán National Park. Here we find the famous Cordillera Blanca and dog-friendly hikes! This park isn’t as famous as Macchu Picchu, but I would say it is beautiful in its own way.
We’ll be staying here for a few days doing some hikes and also acclimatizing to the altitude. What a beautiful way to spend day 100 of our journey!
