Welcome to Barranca


Neighboring Pativilca, located 10km further north, is where the road branches off to Huaraz and the Cordillera Blanca. This spectacular route climbs inland via cactus-laden cliffs, cathedrals of sheer rock, with desert brown slowly turning into a carpet of greenery as you climb up to Huaraz.
