ach new day is an opportunity for a new adventure. The more we become aware about ourselves and our surroundings, the closer the point where our everyday lives start to transform from a mechanical daily routine into a force of infinite creative possibilities. A single decision can trigger a 100.000 mile journey !
nriched with many unforgettable moments and invaluable experience, we bid our farewells to the wonderful land of Peru. After several successful Perviam treks (Rajucolta laguna – Churp Laguna – Vinicunca – Machu Picchu) we gained some climbing confidence…and we were steadily heading to a land where some of the most challenging and highest peaks in the Southern Hemisphere were waiting to be conquered and marveled upon – Bolivia!
ver since we were kids we’ve longed to visit one of our planets most wealthiest countries – Peru. Of course, by saying wealthiest we don’t speak in terms of money. According to many Peru is “a country blessed with a unique heritage. Where riches are measured in wellbeing and harmony with nature”. – and after many years of dreaming about this distant and enchanting land, we finally got an opportunity to verify this claim.
fter a 9 hour bus ride and during the early morning hours, we finally arrive to Huaraz. Thinking about Lima and the humid and tropical “vibe” that it had, coming to Huaraz felt as if we went to a completely different world. The fresh mountain air, the impressive peaks of the Andes occasionally appearing and disappearing into the clouds, the lack of oxygen…adventure calls !
hen we got back from the previous trek, we thought that a new one, that had been planned for tomorrow, was just a nice idea. Our heads were still banging from the previous trek and we felt as if our legs were seriously weighted. Upon entering our room, sleep delivers it’s definite knockout…
e could go through various facts and historical details about one distant and ancient place deeply hidden in the mountains that stand high on a continent that seems otherworldly. This kind of info could be quite interesting to some of our readers.
hen we first heard about Vinicunca, more commonly referred to as “The Rainbow Mountain”, and checked it online, we immediately thought to ourselves “Oh boy, 100% Photoshop…”. The mountain looked so unusual and unreal that we had a hard time accepting that it actually existed.
