The "highway," for the next three hundred kilometers, was literally deserted but for a couple of lamas for whom we slammed on our brakes as they crossed ...
... the “Big Ice” hike.
Hielo y Aventura is a bit expensive (~$150 for Big Ice) and doesn’t include anything except cramp-ons and a harness, so come prepared.
