After a couple of days in Lima and a day on the bus its great to be finally getting into the mountains and experiencing the real Peru! We are on our our way to Lake Chirrup, at 4450 above sea level, this is our first acclimatisation hike.
All set up at our first camp on the Huayhuash.
Everyone is excited about receiving their very own Active Earth Adventures snack bag for the trek!
We’re done! After about 140kms, 8300m of climbing over 12 days we have arrived in the town of llamac. It’s been a fantastic couple of weeks, great group and some of the most spectacular mountains I have ever seen! Buen viaje amigos!
Arriving into camp 2 - near Laguna Mitucocha. Tents up - afternoon tea - stroll up to the lake- life's good at 4160m above sea level.
View from Santa Maria Pass - just over 5000 metres, now for the descent. The glacier to the left [yerapaja] is where we go tomorrow for our "touching the void" day hike!
