I had great time! You wake up before sunrise and go on this long bus trip up to the base of the mountain. There, they stop at a small town and give you some breakfast. take this opportunity to eat really well, and drink a lot of water, you will need the energy. After that we continued up, it is so nice to have to transportation taken care of because honestly I would not have felt comfortable driving along those steep mountain roads myself. we then made the climb, spent about an hour or so at the glacier, we sat together while our guide gave us an explanation of the surrounding areas. The climbed back down, stopped for a very good late lunch, and they dropped us back in town. Just to note- The climb up to the glacier is REALLY HARD. Im in my late twenties, I am pretty athletic shape, my only health issue is that I have mild asthma. Im not sure if I would recommend it the anyone with more severe health issues. The altitude really messed with a lot of people, bring coca leaves to chew.
Our guide Freddy and the service was excellent and the scenery was beutiful. This is a difficult hike but horses are available. Despite the cloud cover we really enjoyed accomplishing the hike.
Our guide Cesar went above and beyond when my friend lost her very important items on the Hunatay Hike. The hike itself was amazing and the history and views we're incredible.
MAGIC VIEW, incredibly knowledgeable guide, very young but careful driver one of the most spiritual places I have ever been!
Awesome experience! If you’re over 40, just get the horse back ride up or maybe from half way.
