Because of my work I travel a lot around my country. Between trips I often visit this place situated at a height of 4000mts where nature is seen at its best. Here you can see the photos I took of the Sierra de Huancavelica in a place called Pucapunta, near the mine where he worked.
Huancavelica is one of the poorest regions in Peru. There is not much to do in this region, but the views are superb and unbeatable. Taking the road that connects it to Huancayo is an unmissable experience. A place between the Andes and the Peruvian sky. Walking the road between Huancayo and Pampas is a magical experience and in nature. You cross the highlands, silencent and nostalgic. The sunsets here are really breathtaking.
