TRACK IN POOR CONDITION

After knowing about the accident, from all fronts they complained about the terrible state of the Cusco – Quillabamba road, especially the Abra Málaga sector, where the accident was recorded, where the speed bumps, holes and cracks make driving through the area more than complicated.
