Grueling but amazing trek! You will see snow capped peaks and sweltering forests. The accommodations are great - this coming from a hard core city boy.
And lastly, Carlos...is...the..man!! Best tour guide ever, highly recommend! The food was amazing, we had an international chef accompany us on our trip, and every meal of every day was an amazing surprise. How they cook these meals without a proper kitchen astounds me.We did stay in tents, but you we're given a nice mat and a very warm sleeping bag.
Plus you camp in little communities, several of which had hot showers (!!!), perhaps the greatest luxury a man can afford!.
