There, we enjoy the sunset views and lights, and after dinner we will rest for the following day when we climb the last part (ca. 3 hours) to an altitude of app. 4.750m/15.600ft (for safety reasons we do not ascend to the very top at 4.939m/16.200ft). We will have a rest there and enjoy the spectacular Andean panorama. Finally, we will descend and return in private transport and have lunch.
