What you'll do

We will start early in the morning at 3:00 a.m. by taking our three hour ride to the first community where we will have breakfast. At the end of breakfast, we will travel for another 40 minutes until we reach the point where our hike will begin. It is a medium difficulty hike in which we will enjoy some of the most beautiful landscapes. It is a 6 hours trekk (we'll be making stops throughout the trek), where we will meet a couple of lagoons in the middle of the mountains, we will be able to see condors flying and, if we are lucky, we will meet wild vicuñas! Our destination is believed to be a sanctuary of the first order with a political and religious power that has not yet been deciphered. Located at an altitude that reaches 4,300 meters above sea level (more than 14,000 feet) we will have the opportunity to tour the place and learn about its history as well as a time dedicated to taking photographs (the drone shots look amazing). In addition, we will have a privileged view of the landscape in which this fortress was built. Upon arrival we will take our lunch and then tour the area and begin the descent, which is also full of amazing scenery.
