  • This was an en-route stop for us, not a trek or climb. There's no need to climb to the summit to enjoy a visit to Chachani, this was therefore for the views so there were no undue physical demands. Wh...  more »
  • This tour avoids operator please: we have not booked Explorer in Calle Jerusalem.Das best Quechua at the Agency and still ended up at this Agentur.Achtung! The agencies work together, so when booking always ask. In particular, I'd avoid the mountain guide Ivan. He is arogant, has all z.B.wie better you wearing backpack or how to run with the sticks and dares not do you what he says deuch. He has an own pace, people seem to mind him. We had to follow his pace, no matter whether we could or not go. I had a few weak moments on the mountain, where I often had to pause and he wanted me to just down chic. On the mountain went off on me, has made allegations, I puts at risk the entire group that they have to freeze because of me. I am we on the contrary to the other sure that it only dealt with shops, had their own clothes and the whole group only borrowed Lumpen.Das was not my first tour, I had already the opportunity to work some mountain guides. Most were very nice and helpful, wanted you climbing the mountain. I believe Ivan is not among those. The best thing was to conclude it lies that people descending on the mountain, without taking into consideration that some of them were were really inexperienced. People were afraid of the vertical descents in the Schut really terribly and he let her stehen...weil that were too slow, I have something to him nor gesen not in life. Apart from the fact that he my friend previously had complained that he was too much ahead. During the descent which I also for utter nonsense found had we so impossible just each other stick in a group? This guy don't worry had the license to lose amazes me. Because I had a fight with him, we were the only ones which he had not congratulated the ascent on the mountain. I would like to warn you just before him.

  • Chachani is spectacular, but with hands to feel each block from Ashlar of the foreign of the Chachani with which the White City is built, is priceless.
