Huinchu Puya de Raimundi

A S/.100 taxi (we split it four ways) up the Cordillera Negra site takes you to a curve in the road call Huinchu. Huinchu is a bosque (forest) of a unique type of tree, the Puya de Raimundi, and breathtaking (I don't ever use this word unless it is truly deserved) panoramic views of the whole Cordillera Blanca. You can also see the Pacific Ocean from here too. The pictures are the only way to truly describe it.

There's the road we came up on.
