    I traveled with my family (42, 14, 12 and 3 years old) to the pastoruri glacier in a private tour, an excellent trip and very well organized by Scheler Artizone Trek. We climbed up to 5,100 meters above sea level without problems with the support of Scheler and his team. The stops that the tour makes are unforgettable, such as a lagoon of boiling water but being cold, the seven-color lake whose purity allows you to see the bottom with different colors depending on the depth, the cave paintings, and obviously the glacier, where there are horses and people who help you carry small children or anything you need. The icing on the cake is the private meal or lunch organized by Scheler at a height of almost 5000 meters above sea level in a peaceful place with majestic views. They set up a table with all the services and dishes of food and hot drinks. It is a unique, unforgettable and highly personalized experience. Thanks Scheler, we really enjoyed it. Greetings from Mexico.
