Trekking in the Cordillera Blanca (Andes) in Peru
The path gradually climbs along the stream on the left slope higher and higher, and finally at the turn open high mountains. Go uphill in the hot sun is very hard. In the evening the wind rises and it becomes quite cold. As soon as the sun falls over the mountain, the Milky Way immediately turns on. Throughout the track, cows, bulls, donkeys and horses graze everywhere, in a word, around you is livestock, so you should think of water disinfection means for drinking on the road.
There are a couple of places where the flow turbulent waterfalls off a cliff, the water there may not need to be decontaminated. Around the lake are picturesque dried swamps, grass and moss, which look like artificial floor mats. Due to frost at night and freezing temperatures from November to April, the flora is not particularly eager to grow high, so dandelions grow right in the ground.
At some point, the green valley is interrupted by a giant mountain scree that has fallen off a mountain. And the whole valley becomes like a white stony desert, in some places, however, interrupted by streams. The water in the lake is clean and bright turquoise. For a person suffering from stress, lost in an expanding human civilization, the mountains have become a kind of "game space" in which he can be enriched with experiences and experiences that are not available to him in everyday life.
Cordillera Blanca consists of several mountain ranges divided by valleys. The mountains bear significant glaciation. Many lakes, often with intense color. Along the valleys pass trails, and sometimes roads. The area is of interest both for climbers and for travelers - there are several popular tracks, for example 3-4-day Santa Cruz, or a longer 10-day track around the Alpamayo peak.
