THE HARDEST trail/hike I have EVER done and I’ve done 6,000ft elevation gain and 26 miles in a day to a 12,700ft peak in the USA. My husband and I acclimated amazing to the extremely high altitude. This is the highest altitude we’ve ever hiked at. Extremely STEEP incline for 75% of the hike. Some points were pretty rocky and sandy and tons of sliding. We did not use any trekking poles, but those would be highly recommended. Such an amazing hike and to see the Lago de Sol and de Luna. The wind was probably the only thing that made the hike less enjoyable- gusts up to around 40mph. Insane. So worth every bit of elevation gain.
