Going to Huancavelica from Huancayo Jun 05, 2010
Huancavelica is located in highlands and there is no direct way to reach this town. If you want to visit it - which is totally worth it - you have to go either through Huancayo or through Pisco.

I chose going through Huancayo, since I already knew the good conditions of the highway there. But I didn't know the highway from Huancayo to Huancavelica was so smooth, just be ready for a road with several curves. The altitude didn't affect me, but the several curves the car did.

You can either catch a bus near the market in Huancayo or a colectivo, which is much faster, since the car will departure once there are 4 passengers. Yes, it's a bit more expensive, but still very cheap. Just do not jump into any random car, go for a company one. That will make things much safer.
