26.12.2008 - 31.12.2008
Collected from our hotel at 4.45am. Slept on the bus. The first day walking was quite tough, about 8 hours, lots of uphills where i found it difficult to breath because of the altitude.
An incredible day where we walked up to a mountain pass, highest point 6,264. The views were amazing. After lunch we descended to 4,000 where it was hot jungle. From here on the mosquitos started to attack.
A nice morning walking along the flat, saw banana trees, orchids, butterflies etc. Arrived in Santa Teresa.
Met a monkey called Panchito in Santa Teresa.
Got up early and started climbing the mountain at 4am. Steep stairs all the way up for about an hour and I half. I found it pretty difficult, especially on an empty stomach. Bit overcast when we arrived but it´s an amazing, spiritual place.
Went to a place called Tipon to eat guinea pig.
