During this trip, I realised why I really love this modern trekking style! I remembered, that not so long ago, I was on another trek having to put my feet in the icy river just to clean them. I had cold feet all night.
Now, I was drinking a glass of red wine with my feet submerged in the hot tub and spectacular views all around.

Just a quick note to tell you that my 4 days of trekking with your company were by far the best of my month long trip. Also, everyone on the staff was so kind, and Juan and Yamil were exceptional.

Over the past 25 years I have been up many 5,000 m plus peaks and trekked many fabulous routes in the Andes.
