Access

This road that goes there is  very exciting and sometimes very exposed and unsecured driveway in innumerable twists and turns. It’s asphalted and is called 28B. After the Inca town of Ollantaytambo the asphalted road climbs in numerous hairpin bends, each offering a still more spectacular view of the Sacred Valley. On the eastern side of the summit, the road descends into an area de neblina — a rugged area characterized by mist, puna grasses, and fens.

The road to the top starts in Ollantaytambo, a town and an Inca archaeological site in southern Peru some 60 kilometers northwest of the city of Cusco. It’s 65.6 km and includes 61 hairpin turns. This road is usually open all year, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow.
