Kelly Ryan called in from the trail yesterday afternoon to report that all continues to go smoothly. The team is all smiles as they enjoy the trail and the spectacular views along the way.
Today, they will climb up to the beautiful, turquoise colored Suyrococha Lake at 13,900. After the lake they’ll continue up to the top of Salkantay Pass (15,180 feet), then they’ll enjoy spectacular views of the glacier and the surrounding peaks of the sacred mountain, Salkantay.
The day ends at their campsite at Collcapampa hot springs, located at around 14,000 feet. A big day but worth the effort!
