Have just done this route and am now in Colombia heading north.

The route is amazing! Stay at Pension Saracay for 2 bucks a night in Zumba. the road from the goes to San Ignacio south and to Jena (I think). From there head south through the road which will take 2 FULL days to do 300km. Passing through Huamachuco, Mollepata, Cabana, LLapo, La Pampa, Corongo, Huallanca, Caraz and into the Canon del Pato. One of my favourite rides as well. ENjoy! Go slow. Take care!

There is a thread in the best roads in south america or something with more detail.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
