CHACHANI TOUR REPORT

July 30, 2007
Hello Saul,
Thank a lot for your help and everything that organized me the best trip to Peru I've ever had! Climbing Chachani was one of my ultimate dreams for a long time since I made it to the top! It was the highest point of my life at 6075m with your helpful guide - Jose; he's considerate, friendly and helpful guide even though he walk too fast!! Anyway, that was one of my memorial treks in my life so far! Now, I ready to summit some peak in Himalayas!
Thank you again.
