IMG Senior Guide Adam Clark checked in with some great photos of the day yesterday. The team was up early to catch the boat from Copacabana to Sun Island with our tour guide Rosemary. Adam said they had thunderstorms during the night but when the sun came up, it was just beautiful. Once on Sun Island, the team took a casual hike to the summit at 13,500 feet. That is a nice acclimatization hike when you consider Lake Titicaca sitting at 12,467 feet!
As the team made their way to the top and then back to the waters edge for lunch, they would pause periodically to learn about the history of the Aymara people and their beliefs from Rosemary. Adam said “Rosemary is a wealth of knowledge and so great to have with the team.”
Back to Copacabana in the afternoon to rest and prepare for this mornings drive to Tambo Condoriri (14,000 ft) and our first camp. The team is feeling great and excited to move closer to the mountains and their first objective, Pequeno Alpamayo.
All is well in Bolivia!
