Day 3: ascent to the Cara del Indio peak
As a free option for volunteers, we can climb the Cara Del Indio peak. The view of Mérida is splendid from the top of its 4120 meters of altitude. On the descent, we will pass by another superb high altitude lake, the Puentes Lake. Bypassing this lake risks getting your feet wet if you are not careful! The barely visible little path continues towards El Abismo, a geological peculiarity where a mountain torrent rushes. We will finally arrive at our camp site after 5 to 6 hours of walking at 3500 meters above sea level.
Accommodation: Night in a tent.
Communication: No network.
