  1. Your experience on Illimani reminds me of my own in Parinacota. I also had to turn back because my brother could not go on. And we only had one guide and I decided not to to leave him and go alone.

    Very beautiful place and great visibility. Amazingly, I could clearly see Illimani from up there. It was ridiculously, impossibly far (137 miles/ 220 kilometres) and yet there was no mistaking the distinctive triple peak (your photo must have been taken from a different angle) and it was in just the right place and I couldn’t see what else it could be.
