... CLIMBING!!!) again. The goal that day was to see Araucaria trees (Monkey Puzzle trees) and we were not disappointed. After completing the 5 hour walk we were well satisfied for scenery and exercise.
Time to move on. Goal to cross the Andes by a new path. Crossing at Liucura / Pino Hachado. First leg took us as far as Manzanar via Parque National Congquillo and Volcan Llaina (another active volcano). The ride through the park turned out to be ...

At about the 2000 metre mark, 840 metres from the top, we came to a halt along with most of the other groups while our guide assessed the slope above. He came back a few minutes later with bad news, because of the ice we wouldn't be able to summit, but neither would the other groups. We were of course a ...
