To go from Lima to San Pedro the only possibility you have, is to go by bus to Huancayo.The ride will be about 7 hours and you cross a mountain range over 4.800 m high full of bends.
The trip guides you through a mostly sterile area, passing big lead mines. The highest spot is in Ticlio where the air is very thin.
