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.
All around amazing experience! The communication was wonderful and our guide was extremely accommodating, especially since I was the only one who didn’t speak Spanish in the group. She kindly translated everything for me. I was also solo and felt very comfortable with this tour company. Breakfast and lunch were really good too!! I highly recommend getting a horse for the hike up. It’s much much harder than you think (I’m a pretty avid hiker and still ended up opting for a horse after starting up a bit). If you’re unsure which company to go with, you really can’t go wrong with Willka. Had such a great time!
Everything from start to finish was great! Our guide, Tony and driver Dino were awesome. They made sure everything went as scheduled and we had 0 issues! Tony was super chill and hilarious!The breakfast and lunch is good and was a great start and finish to the day. We ended up getting horses (80 soles) because the hike is no joke! It’s about 20% flat, 80% incline. Overall, it was worth it once you get to the lake! I’d recommend booking here if you are interested in going!
What a wonderful trip! The breakfast is on the smaller side so load up on snacks. The lunch is FABULOUS! The hike is very hard but you can rent a horse/donkey if you’d like. The lake and mountains are beautiful! The tour made everything so easy and informative. Definitely recommend
it was a shocking experience. we did not expect to encounter such a magical landscape. nevertheless it was a rather tedious journey.
