Departure in the morning from Mérida by public transport towards La Culata. After about 1 hour of driving, we will reach the end of the road at La Culata at 3000 meters above sea level. On the way, vast meadows alternate with dense vegetation, made up of frailejones with their fine stems and fluffy leaves, from the edelweiss family. We camp in the evening at the base camp of Pan de Azúcar peak at an altitude of 4200 meters after 6 to 7 hours of walking.

Accommodation: Night in a tent.

Day 2: Crossing Culata to the Carbonera lake

Busy program today with the ascent of the La Carbonera lake pass. All trace of vegetation has disappeared when, after crossing several high altitude lakes, we arrive at the Carbonera pass. The view is splendid but the freezing cold! We continue the path downhill towards the Escopetas lakes to finally reach the beautiful La Carbonera lake. We will spend the night there after 6 to 7 hours of walking at 4200 meters altitude.

Accommodation: Night in a tent.

Day 3: Thermal waters of Musuy

We take a small path on the right which takes us down through a very little frequented valley. The path meanders on both sides of a small torrent with crystal clear waters. A small forest appears, making the setting even more magical. After a small bridge, you will have to go up for 45 minutes to reach the thermal waters. These have two pools where we can enjoy a well-deserved rest. Depending on the time we wish to have on site, either the return can be done this day at the beginning of the afternoon to Mérida by public transport or it is possible to extend this program by one day and spend the night on place in tent. This day we will have walked 4 to 5 hours.

Accommodation: none.
Communication: No network.
