This is a great loop that can be done either in a day or an overnight. There is limited water (the only source during the uphill push is in the actual town of Altos de Pacora) so be sure to pack around 3L/person. Steep uphill but so rewarding. Check out Jessica's tienda, too, once in the town. It's more hidden than the traditional tienda stop but she'll make some great food and is really welcoming.
