After a hair-raising minibus ride over Portachuelo, we met our donkeys + donkey 'driver' and headed off up the valley with our newly formed Anglo/German/Belgian amateur trekking collective. With relative ease we climbed to 3950m, and camped for the evening. An incredible night's sky was witnessed, and even more beautiful views of the surrounding glaciers during sunrise the followed the next morning.
