This hike takes place with mules and muleteers. There isn’t any possibility of assistance by vehicle; the shipment will be limited to a minimum.


Helpful tips:

Having a good physical condition. Once on site, we will not have options of assistance.

In addition, an excellent altitude acclimatization is essential, we will camp overnight at altitudes between 4000 and 4500 meters.

Mules cannot carry an excessive load, we must avoid needlessly charge us.

Minimum requirement:

- Change for the night (1 trousers 1 sweater or jacket, dry socks and shirts that you will have traveling with the mule during the day)

- 1 pair of socks and shirts to change per day (if frequent rains)

- Poncho for rain and waterproof pants in case of rain
