    Quarry trail, Day 1

    June 8, 2017 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Today we headed off and up! Up up & up! Starting at 2920m we made it to our campsite by lunch time, just in time for our first 2 course hiking lunch, prepared by our chef and sous chef!
    After lunch there was time for a siesta before exploring our first Inka site close to camp. As the temperature dropped we all started teaching each other dances and songs from our own countries (including a poor attempt at a haka from us) as a way to keep ourselves warm before our 3 course dinner! Then it was straight to bed to rest for the hardest day tomorrow!Read more

    Trek

    September 23, 2015 in Peru ⋅ 🌙 8 °C

    That same afternoon (sorry too many gorgeous photo opportunities for one post!) we elected to walk even higher to summit at 4,850. And the views were truly spectacular. No other word. It was so peaceful up there without a mother person in sight and nothing to hear bar our voices, the birds and the winds. Oh and after we managed to survive the super steep scramble down we walked along to a lovely Inca temple, celebrating Mount Verónica. This mountain was so named because no one could reach the summit (despite a great many attempts) Finally a German woman named Verónica showed up and sumitted no bother, embarrassing all the men.Read more
