I had great time! You wake up before sunrise and go on this long bus trip up to the base of the mountain. There, they stop at a small town and give you some breakfast. take this opportunity to eat really well, and drink a lot of water, you will need the energy. After that we continued up, it is so nice to have to transportation taken care of because honestly I would not have felt comfortable driving along those steep mountain roads myself. we then made the climb, spent about an hour or so at the glacier, we sat together while our guide gave us an explanation of the surrounding areas. The climbed back down, stopped for a very good late lunch, and they dropped us back in town. Just to note- The climb up to the glacier is REALLY HARD. Im in my late twenties, I am pretty athletic shape, my only health issue is that I have mild asthma. Im not sure if I would recommend it the anyone with more severe health issues. The altitude really messed with a lot of people, bring coca leaves to chew.
Super easy experience, from start to finish. The agency took care of our tickets for both the entrance and the bus to MP, and the guide met us at hotel in the morning and went with us on the bus, it was all laid out perfect for us, even though we booked short term (I think 4 days prior to arrival, as we were unsure if we were going to be able to go w/the ever changing covid restrictions). Everything can be done electronically (tickets), either through email or Whatsapp, and communication from the agency was great, the guide was awesome!
It was amazing, the guide picked me up from my hotel on time and everything was perfect as mentioned in the itinerary. And the guide was super friendly and helpful. Much recommended
Such a fun experience! We drove around in quads through small towns and got to see all of the beautiful scenery that you can’t see in a car.
The experience was great and the guide was very sweet and informative of the history and facts of each site.
