The “Infiernillo” (little hell) is a very narrow gorge or canyon shared by the Rio Rimac river, the “Carretera Central” main highway, and the railroad. In addition, the remains of the old road are still standing in the gorge. The walls are made of almost vertical cliffs about 300 m / 1000 ft high. Given the lack of space, most pictures of the bridge are close-up views (click here to see examples). So this time I wanted a different picture, from above. As I am not a cliff climber, together with John Lopez my wonderful guide from the FCCA railroad, we wished to hike to the top of the hill and we looked for a trail around the bridge. A farmer and miner living in Cacray gave us the solution. He showed us a trail leading to a vertiginous vantage point. I am not subject to vertigo but it was a bit impressive to shoot pictures under my feet!
