andes of lima

Andes of Lima are mostly dry except for the narrow valleys that comes from the summits to the coast. This geo position of this part of the Andes will show us many ecosystems: from the humid coast, to a desert at the bottom of the mountain range, driving by zig zag roads that climbs up to the top of this Andean land with infinite landscapes reaching the 11,500 ft.

Mostly landscapes, but sometimes you find people, birds or things, so consider to use a tele or a macro lens.

Rains in the Andes end usually in March, so in April we may begin to drive up safely to the Andes until (with luck) December.

The mostly part of the trip is made on a sunny place, a bit cold or windy maybe up there but not freeze at all. So sunscreen and a windvest will be enough.
If you have some food limitations you may bring your own. We deliver in our truck or van some light food as sandwiches, fruit, water, we will be in a land with few public services until we reach in the afternoon the village of Antioquia where we may lunch some good local food (don´t expect anything fancy).

This photo trip is done in a single day, leaving the city around 6am to be at the Andean zone around 10am, after spend some hours around the area we will be back at Antioquia around 3pm where we will spend some time and lunch  before leaving back to Lima, arriving around 7 pm.

OPTIONS: We may extend the trip sleeping in some village (very basic services) to be a witness of everyday life of inhabitants of the Andes.
