Andes of Lima: The Road of Gods
Lima before spanish, had a milenary god: Pachacámac, the one who rules the earth. And in the Andes rules another: Pariacaca, the gifter of life.
To connect both god lands people built roads, now known as Inca Trails. This trip goes from coast to the Andes to understand how was life in this amazing land.
Rains in the Andes end usually in March, so in April we may begin to drive up to the Andes.
We will pass many climates and ground conditions, from the humid coast, to a desert at the bottom of the mountain range, driving by zig zag roads taht climbs to the top of this land, getting to the flat lands of the Andes with infinite landscapes.
The second part is the way down back to the coast, passing by villages with some shortcut trails to walk on by, the option of shooting landscapes, people, animals, flowers is open to any of us.
The end of this trail before driving to the city is the village of Antioquia at Lurin river.
While Lima is mostly covered by clouds this trip takes us to a very sunny beautiful day.
IMPORTANT: we shall pass across the Andes Mountain range, around 3,600 m. (12,000 ft.) so is very important to have no health issues, you have to be ready to walk at heights. Personal health and safety are fully responsability of adventurers.
