Crossing from the Cuzco province (basically the same thing as a state) to the Puno province means passing this spot in the Andes Mountains. This was the highest elevation we experienced in Peru at a little over 14,100 feet. I can tell you that it was a little hard to breath. Not terrible, but you could feel it.
Anyway, we stopped at this spot for a few minutes to look at the roadside vendors and take in the view of this amazing mountain range. My picture doesn’t do justice to this beautiful spot. Sorry I can’t give you a picture to match the real world experience of standing there. Regardless, I hope you enjoy it.
Note: Don't forget to look at the video below to see how beautiful this site was via a different media format.
Sorry about the wind noise on the video.
