Day 9: Pampamarca Alto to Chalhuanca (23.03, 83km)

23.03_1_this is what I see when I wake upI woke up to see snow all around. Somehow it gave me a funny feeling of excitement, and with adrenaline pumping in my blood, I started to climb. It took around eight kilometers in order to reach 4,500 meters again, followed by a 70 kilometer ride down in the spectacular Chalhuanca river canyon, surrounded by steep slopes and impressive waterfalls. The wind was so strong that I had to take care not to lose my balance on the bike, but when I finally reached the city, I was at 3,000 meters and the weather was warm and balmy.
