    Give yourself enough time to acclimatize. Better than the major tourist draws in Peru. I went to the ER with altitude sickness after this and would still do it again, over MP any day.

    The guide was nice and helpful. I don't speak Spanish very well but the guide always tried to explain it in English too. Make sure to bring good hiking shoes and enough water.

    The attention that Scheler gave us, communicating through Whatsapp, picking up at our hostel and teaching us everything necessary for we to make it to the top of the hike was simply amazing. I definitely recommend this agency
