The road from Huancayo to Ayacucho and from Ayacucho to Cusco is an interesting one. It’s only about 450 km as the bird flies, but the total time for this track is a stunning 32 hours by bus. It sounds like horror but I can recommend it. Not only will you get over any fear of dangerous driving and bad roads, but also will you see all types of landscapes Peru has to offer. And besides Ayacucho and Huancayo are very nice and lovely cities. Some crappy impressions from the road.
