Day 2: After breakfast will reach the mountain in 45 minutes, and almost 2 hours to hike the top. Then crossing the mountain takes another 2 hours. We will camp right there next to the abyss of the mountain. You never forget this view. The afternoon is going to be an adventure to explore the top of Chirikayen, discovering unique plants and taking pictures as souvenirs. Overnight and dinner on the top, in tents.
