... I think that’s a sensible plan.
I also checked out my itinerary and it looks like I have plenty of time to spend an day here, so I might as well take in the scenery while I can. This will all be good practice for the Machu Picchu trek too, so it’s good.

... pervuvian who funnily enough was from the tiny village of Llupa where we had been earlier in the day.
Johanes recommend that we did the Alpamayo hike as an 8 day circuit rather than a 10 day one as 8 days would be enough if we were hiking quickly and we wouldn’t need to carry as much food. He told us that nearly everyone does this hike with donkey support for all the gear but that if ...
