Lascar Vulcano

Although I was here in the driest desert outside the polar regions, I was not very lucky with the weather and we had a snowstorm on the 5.592m high active volcano. Fortunately, all the other participants except me canceled the mountain tour, so I was able to climb the volcano alone with the mountain guide. On the volcano a surprise was waiting for us. Since we made the tour on the longest day of the year, some Chileans also made a pilgrimage to the volcano to hold their ceremony there, in which we were then allowed to participate. I must admit, however, after the half-hour ceremony I was totally frozen and I was really happy to be allowed to go down again.
