South America | Peru | Central Peru – Meseta de Marcawasi – hiking
in september, saturday 20th to sunday 21st, i went on a week-end hike with trine, carlos, pedro and a bunch of other peruvians. it was great!
the outing was organized by “el club de monta?ismo camycam” – a peruvian hiking club. they do everything from easy day trips to professional mountain climbing.
we started walking from San Pedro de Casta, a town that is about 3 hours out of centro lima. we were all going to meet downtown at 7:30am, but it was 8:30 before everybody was there.. peruvian time; what more is there to say?
la meseta de marcawasi is between 3900 and 4200 meters above sea level. it was hot at day and cold at night. i didn’t feel the altitude that much, but some of the others really did. one of the guys threw up, but mostley people where just really tired and sleepy.
