Day 2: Ascent of the Pan de Azúcar peak and then return to the Sheepfold
Our hike continues to the base of the peak, where we leave all the equipment. We gradually climb to the top of Pan de Azúcar, the path passes through a sandy path where the largest frailejones are found (higher than 3 meters!). At 4400m, the frailejones no longer grow and we continue towards the summit through a desert and sandy landscape. Finally the top! 4680 meters! From here we enjoy a magnificent view of the mountains, valleys and lakes, it is even possible on a clear day to see as far as Lake Maracaibo to the north, and the high peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the south. The descent follows more or less the same path as the ascent. We collect our equipment and continue our hike towards a magical path that winds between the mountains.
