What to get from INCA TRAIL

Every 200 people and 300 people start to leave. 82 on the Inca Trail. Machu Picchu, Peru, has devoted a great deal of effort to protecting and maintaining this famous route by limiting licensing and building special camps. If you want to head on your own Inca Trail, here’s a quick list of things to expect, so you can be prepared as well as possible.

10 things to expect in the Inca route
When they told you that day, Day 2 was the hardest day … They did not lie. The women’s march through this is more difficult than expected. Lots of stairs up to a high altitude make this a challenging day, not a lot of easy walking in the garden.
Wilderness on the trail, inca

All weather is possible. We go from short sleeves in the sun to pour rain at lower temperatures than comfortable. At the end of Day 2, the summit is cold and windy, with long sleeves, jackets, gloves, hats and everything else. On the third day, heavy rain is enough. If you do not wrap it under your coat or under a poncho, you may be wet. Conditions on the route vary greatly, as is the season throughout the year. Ruby of the dead woman passes the inca route.
Do not wear clothes. The toilet on the Inca route consists of holes in the ground with two grooves to place your feet and they are not happy. Five hundred people with all mud feet tried to use only six existing toilets, resulting in questionable hygiene status. These toilets are not much during the day, so most people use natural toilets. TIP! Squat practice before leaving

Incredible scenery From the minute you start walking to the day you arrive, Machu Picchu is famed for its amazing views of the Andes. From the lush mountains with occasional waterfalls in the background to the jungle like clouds, the landscape of this path is not disappointing.
Scenery on the trail inca

The ruins more than you expect along the way, not just Machu Picchu that you will see throughout this four day trip. From the old fortress to the religious ritual, this period will be torn down with the ruins of choice. Expect to see the ancient ruins that lay around you all the time without entrance; These ruins are for single people. As you walk through the trail, you will have the opportunity to stop and explore the different archaeological sites of the Inca people.
Ruins on the trail inca

No rain, I do not care what the tour company tells you … no warm water or even a shower. Over the years, Peru has struggled with rains and even restaurants in the last camp. But it’s closed down due to barbarism, so you do not have to worry. You just have to look like you survived the four days of Machu Picchu’s jungle trail.
Located on the Inca route.

Early in the morning, when the sun rises, you rise. Starting your day as fast as possible means you can spend more time on the trail, whether it’s taking a walk up the ancient stairs or enjoying some archeology.
Camping on the trail inca

Porters make you feel luxurious when traveling dirty. These people are beyond miracles. They take half the fabric of the tent, kitchen, chairs, everything and run up the hill on their back, all while wearing sandals, making you and your climbing shoes seem funny. When you arrive at your camp with a tent, a sleeping bag, and everything else laid out for you, these guys make you feel like celebrities as they clap and cheer you while you’re camping. Following them, they supply you with warm water, tea, popcorn and finally dinner. I have seen one run to the camp and come back with a sandwich to feed the elderly hungry. These people are trying their best to make you feel like celebrity during your harsh hikes on the inca trail.
Harmony among hikers Your tour group may be full of new people, but when it comes to trek, they are like your new family. Everyone is likely to create this period in the three months following the time they get a license to ride. These friends who have similar goals will experience dependency and empowerment. Clap and hug you while you’re done carrying a bag or even holding hands when you use the toilet of nature. The Inca Trail experience allows us to break the barriers. “We just met” and built your family relationship.

EL CHALTEN ARGENTINA: ARGENTINAS HIKING Scholarship

Previously, I had a 5 day hike through Torres del Paine, followed by hiking for a few days around Tierra del Fuego. Needless to say, my shoes and toes were slightly worn out when it reached El Chalten in Argentina. Out of the bus station, I looked up and saw that this small village was separated by two huge stone walls. I know rightly that my feet are in a little more violent. Signs that. The ‘Capital of the Climbers of Argentina’ also helps.

el chalten national park

In the afternoon I came to unfavorable weather. Most of the rainforests and hills are covered by hiking, so I spend the day preparing for hiking the next day, eating pizza and gathering a few hikers. (Not difficult because it is the only thing to do in El Chalten)

Wilderness walk in Los Alamos National Park

The sun is shining the next morning. The first trip of the El Chalten adventure I was filming was the famous ‘Laguna de los Tres’ and beautiful views of Mount Fitz Roy, instead of walking back and forth from El Chalten itself. We live in Los Glaciares National Park. We choose to transfer to another route and walk up to 25 km from point A to B through Laguna de los Tres mirador.

Glacier National Park Trail of Los Angeles

The beginning of hiking is pretty easy, pretty flat and has shades of gray and gives a panoramic view of Mount Fitz Roy in the background.

Fitz roy

Walk for a few hours, so take some photos and enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the campgrounds. No hiking completed without my salami sandwich lunch. After lunch we headed up and headed out the camp toward the mirador. This involved an hour-long rise. This part of the hike was open to the elements and involves crossing a few river flows with delicious drinking water.

Cross the glacier in El Chalten National Park.

Up to the steep mirador, but not too difficult and full of people. It’s like a highway through marked mountains, and with people heading in both directions. We walked slowly and steadily with very little time. When we arrived at ‘Laguna de los Tres’, we were greeted with one of the most beautiful views of Patagonia.

Route to tres lagunas el chalten

Then we enjoy hiking around mirador and Tres Lagunas. There are colorful lakes, hanging glaciers and beautiful mountains. Fitzpatrick is not going to be a better day.

When we consider our time in mirador We headed back down the mountain through the camp and went to ‘Laguna Capri’. This part of the walk was there for us to cross through a flat, open area to the hot sun with Fitz Roy still. In the background

Resting in front of mount fitz roy argentina

Laguna Capri is a breathtaking mountain lake where many hikers have taken a break for a quick snack break and perhaps a brave swim.

Laguna Capri El Chalten Argentina

After a short break, it’s time to head home and head down the path to El Chalten. The end of the route is easy, without chaos and downhill. As we saw the small town of El Chalten creeping up in the distance, with the sun slowly setting my feet cheering, we almost went home.

View of the city el chalten

Good Argentina steak dinner later. I go to bed at 7:00 am will arrive early and another 21 km. The trek is completed.

Grand Glacier El Chalet Argetina

Laguna Torre, Grande Glacier and Cerro Torre are next to my Trekkers. I think this is a long day. We left at 7:30 in the morning heading up our first mirador. The first stage of hiking is probably the most difficult part, mostly hilly and with uneven trails. The first hour makes us sweat overflow. We stop at the beautiful mirador which gives a wide view of the Cerro Torre for splitting water and snacks.

Hiking in Argentina’s Los Lodge National Park

The path that grew up was a little easier after that my close friend. (I got up the day before) and I talked injustice for two hours as we walked on a gentle slope up through the forest and open space.

A few hours later, we can see. The glacier is in sight. We ate our lunch just beside the lake, fed from Glacier Grande. Enjoy the beautiful view. After lunch, we started climbing to the highest point and also the closest point to the glacier.

CIUDAD PERDIDA: TREK A CITY WITHOUT THE CITY OF Columbia … MACHU PICCHU 2.0

Ciudad Perdida traveled to a lost city, one of the most awaited adventures of my journey to South America. It’s like more raw Machu Picchu. It’s a four-day walk to archeological sites in the woods, just like Machu Picchu, but with fewer restrictions and fewer people. The Machu Picchu Inca trails up to 500 people a day, as well as gatekeepers and travelers. Groups of 3-4 people, 10 people and one person per day.

Perspective of ciudad perdida

Quite a bit of charm, you have to carry your own backpack. However, occasional hammocks and beds are available at each campsite, so the tent is not a problem. Every camp has a cold shower and sink for you to wash in. Your group will have a chef who travels with you, cooks many meals and even cuts and serves occasional snacks. The advice here is going to be easy and fun. But be prepared to find advice in speaking English is rare. You can hire translators for extra fees, or you can even wing and practice your Spanish guide!

The path goes into the lost city trek.

Walking through the jungle is not bad or too hard, but here is the jungle so hot, you probably will not smell all that well at the end of the day. You will sweat from all your clothes. But it’s okay, it’s part of the experience. The views of mangrove forests, mountains and everything that comes with this beautiful adventure will distract you from the heat. The only thing that can distract you from the broad view of the mountain is the rain. Welcome to the Rain Forest Heavy rain in the afternoon makes the journey exciting. The clay is almost a deep foot and is almost impossible to reach. This will improve the fun. During our tour, we wrapped our package in a garbage bag (as instructed) and then slipped and slid down the pedestrian, foot, back, buttocks and stomach. The work becomes a matter that can stand up the hips hoping from the dry spot (est) to dry (est). The spots eventually lead to everyone falling into some amusing position in the mud.

The architecture of the city of Columbia is gone.

Your clothes will not dry. You start your day sweating through them in the heat and humidity pressures. Then you slid and slipped through the mud during the rain, and if that was not enough, you clean yourself by jumping into the pool or river along the way. At about four or five in the afternoon, you and your group are just wet slippery. The camp has lines to hang your clothes. But since this is a humid forest, it helps them enjoy the wet. The next morning, you just suck it up and start your day wet.

A manual in ciudad perdida

The special effects of hiking are an opportunity to interact with the Teyuna people. They are protected native tribes who live in the middle of the jungle. This is how they always live. Not affected by technology and lack of up-to-date education, they also maintain a homeless style home and remain a untouched culture. Children will always come to you on the path if you have a snack to feed them. But most of the Teyuna people keep their distance and go about their day working on their farm. I found it worthwhile and special to experience their lifestyle even when away from the arms as we traveled with them. At one of our camps, we had native kids making their cloths in the river where we were swimming. Their old school laundry techniques consist of dipping their clothes in water and fighting with rocks to help them clean up. On that day, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to interact with my kids playing in the stream.

Native home in Columbia

You reach archaeological sites on the third morning and do not disappoint. It is what you expect beautiful. After an hour’s walk and a few stairs you will reach the start of the famous terrace. The next and further sites and guides have been doing so for many years. There is a passion about first about Colombia as a whole and second on their native history. They tour you through the steps of the city and after that you have 45 minutes to explore the site or just sit and bring it in. As you leave town you can expect to stop swimming under the waterfall that appears. While you are near Bottom of the valley It is hard to imagine that there are other such large sites hidden in the jungle around Colombia.

CLIMBING COTOPAXI: Gather one of the largest VOLCANOES in the world.

The Cotopaxi volcano is in Ecuador, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, and has been in active use for so many years. Cotopaxi rock climbing has been on my list of tanks for many years. I want to stand on the top of a hill and be part of 50% of the successful climbers on this volcano, and I’m Approximately 5,897 m (19,347 ft) from the Eastern Corderilla of the Andes. Snow covered and cone-shaped cone is perfect and has erupted more than 50 times since 1738.

Cotopaxi volcano

Trying to climb Cotopaxi has become a popular tourist destination for many years. Climbing is a technical matter. Use nail pliers, ice cream, rope, straps and nothing scary. Climbers set off the summit of the Jose F. Ribas Refugio, located at 4,800 meters (15,748 feet) at 12:30 am, to reach the summit by 7:30 am. The climber can safely return to the basecamp before glaciers and snow are soft enough to cause avalanches.

Attempting this summit is always on my agenda, I have dreamed of it, researched it for the mind, and finally this year I can try it. This is my story …

Road to Cotopaxi volcano

I have spent a relaxing month on the beach in Salinas with my family talking about … living at sea level, sunbathing and eating empanadas. This may have been a minor mistake. I left my family in Guayaquil by taking a quick flight to Quito, 2,850 meters (9,350 feet), which I plan to spend a few days adjusting and using luggage. Fast forward 2 days later, and I had booked my climbing, renting my technical equipment, doing my groceries, and was waiting for my car to go to Cotopaxi National Park the next morning … a lot for the adaptation. Get used to

Day 1 of our climb and two other climbers waited impatiently to meet our climbing guide and to park our car at the park. We stopped for a lovely lunch … but I was so anxious to eat so I chose my lomo until it was time to walk to the park. I remember telling a lot of ridiculous jokes. Oh yeah … I forgot to mention my Raynaud disease … Nerve? What nerve? Why do everyone have to be nervous about spending 10 hours on the glacier when they feel cold and unattractive to the environment … the joke continues.

Jose F. Ribas Refugio Cotopaxi

We reached our drop point and took a moment to transform into our climbing gear and organize our dress. From here we have time to climb up to the ground at 4,800 meters (15,748 feet). If you suspect this is where Cotopaxi Park tour normally takes you, and we went through the local Ecuador and gringos alike … The only difference is that the 20kg device attached to our back. When we reached the camp, we dropped our pockets, grabbed our picks, took ice and crampons and headed for the glacier to take a little preparation for climbing. Soon after, they returned to the early camp. And a cup of tea before entering the bedroom to relax and relax before 12:30 as if I could sleep with excitement and nerve energy in the air. Oh and it’s really cool. There is no way my sleeping bag will make me feel comfortable even in the heat, gloves and hats. Thanks to my Raynauds, I have little to no feeling on my hands and feet for what seems forever cool and so I take. The next 5 hours wait … and shake

Sitting on the glacier at Cotopaxi Volcano

Alarm clock at 12:00 am on Easter Sunday. (The last time someone died here was a snowstorm on Easter Sunday) and I was ready to travel. I crawled out of my sleeping bag and started the floor. Here we go. Frosties … Heat Tights Lululemon Tights, Hot Pants, Climbing Pants, Underwear, Scalp, Headband, Hats, Gloves Long hair, fleece gloves, gortex gloves you got a picture. I walked up the stairs to breakfast, oatmeal and yogurt and a cup of tea. It was almost time for us to throw in the last touch; Straps, helmets, gear heads, headlights and we headed out and up.

View of Cotopaxi crater

Clear skies, low winds, and the first 200 meters of climbing are easy, not too high, and mostly on gravel islands. We walk along the back of the headlight until we reach the glacier. I’m unconscious We stopped here to put our cramps, grabs our ice and artificial harness as our partners before we started our long climbing and tired up the volcano. Climbing usually occurs at night because of the coldest ice and easie.
