It was challenging but doable even for a beginner like me. The food was great and the views amazing. I don't remember when was the last time I saw a sky as full of stars as the one I saw the first night of the trail.
Raul and Marcos took care of us all the way and made sure we could make it safely. The cook even prepared a cake for one of us because it was his birthday.
Lack of wifi was not easy but you forget after you've climbed enough stairs. Getting use to the altitude might require time.
