The second day of our adventure we had to go from 3100 meters to 4200 meters, it was a 5 hour journey and our guides timing was really good but for the last bit.
It was 1 hour and 30 minutes long and apparently the first hour was gradual then last 30 last minutes were the hardest. We set of already tired but motivated to see the view, the steps already seemed really steep. Up and up we went. Into the clouds and the cold, an hour later it was still as steep and we could see less and less, we continued even if we were stopping every 100 steps.
Once I "saw" the top through the clouds I ran up, stopped, ran again... All the way up sat and gazed upon the valley we climbed, it was more than 1h 30min , and there was no difference in the sections, but it was a magical moment.
