Team Los Gorditos climbed to Camp 1 at 16,340‘ in good style today and had pizza for dinner – the group is well and laughing!
…one from the vaults: our lead arriero (muleteers) Don Mujica preparing our asado (traditional Argentine barbecue) at our first campsite, Pampa de Leña, on the first night during the trek in to basecamp. In case there was any question why we have chosen for ourselves the team name “Los Gorditos” (The Fatties)
Excellent, very organized; virtually hassle-free. The guide was top notch – world class – excellent -very confident; in control, excellent source of information, very patient and very helpful to all.
