During our trek at Ausangate, we experienced incredible views, beautiful animals, such as alpacas, and met amazing people like our tour guides, the Condory brothers. Sadly, on the second day, I came down with a case of altitude sickness. Throughout the entire hike, I felt lightheaded and wanted to pass out, which made it complicated to enjoy it all. The night also got very cold, a temperature that I have never endured before living in LA. Nonetheless, I had a great time and am very grateful to have been able to experience such an amazing trek.
