All Is Well On Illampu Trek


Hello Family and Friends,

I’m pleased to report all is well on the trek. I have been receiving daily updates from the instructors from our satellite device. We keep messages short but they say everyone has been having a great time so far. Here are a few images from my own trek on Illampu from the last time I did it but it will give you an idea of what it’s like. They’ll be able to share their stories and photos when they return.
