Mismi con Esteban de Nativa Express: EL TOP!!!!!!
5.0 of 5 bubblesDec 2019
Toda mi vida voy a estar agradecido con Esteban de Nativa Express por ayudarme a realizar mi sueno de subirme al Mismi, la montana de 5597 m. a cuyas faldas se encuentra la naciente mas remota del Rio Amazonas! Mas alla del fascino y del simbolismo del lugar, se trata de un lugar increible y que sin un guia local experto seria practicamente imposible que visitar! Es increible la capacidad de orientacion de Esteban en el medio de la nada. El tuvo mucha pacienca y nos ayudo mucho (mi pareja tenia bastante soroche). Cuando el tiempo empezo a cambiar, Esteban se dio cuenta antes que nosotros de que un temporal estaba llegando y su conocimiento de la montana probablemente nos salvo la vida!!! Ha sido un dia inolvidable, tal vez el mas feliz de toda mi vida!!! Incluso el transporte en carro para llegar al empiezo del camino no ha sido nada aburrido: el paisaje es increible, casi de otro planeta... y Esteban ademas de conocer todo de la flora, fauna e historia local, es un hombre muy simpatico con miles de anectodas para contar! Si quieren visitar cualquier parte (remota o no) de la zona del Colca, olvidense de las agencia super caras y super turisticas que operan en Arequipa y ponganse en contacto con Nativa Express, preguntando por Esteban de una: van a ahorrar mas del 90% de lo que gastarian con un tour desde Arequipe y tendrian la ocasion de hacerlo de la forma mas autentica!!! ----- All my life I'm gonna be thankfull to Esteban from Nativa Express for helping me in realize my dream to climb Mismi, the 5597 m. mountain where you can find the furthest Amazon River spring! This is not only a fascinating and symbolic place but also an incredible natural area which would be impossible to visit without an expert local guide! Esteban's orientation skills in the middle of nowhere are unbelivable! He had much pacience with us and he helped us a lot (mi girl had pretty much altitude sickness). When the weather began to change, Esteban quicly understand that a storm was coming and I would definetly say that his knowledge of the mountain literaly saved our lifes!!! It's been an unforgettable day, maybe the happiest of my life!!! Even the car transportation to the beginning of the walk was not boring at all: the landscape is incredible, othe planet like... and Esteban moreover than knowing everything about local plants, animals and history, he is a very nice person with thousands of stories to tell! If you wanna visit part (remote or not) of Colca area, forget about super exprensive and touristy agencies in Arequipa and put contact directly Nativa Express, asking for Esteban: you will save more than 90% of the price you would spend for a tour from Arequipa and you would have the occasion to do that in the most authentic way!!!

there is few places in the planet where you can see the mighty condor fly, the journey here is different bit bumpy but you will be having some nice local food on the way. but what waits for you here is really worth it.

After getting to this exact location of the farthest Amazon headwaters, I felt super-special. I wonder if maybe I'm the only American who has ever made it? If you go, let me know! I have tons of pics and video, and still have questions about the ghost village we passed to get there...

Esteban from the Nativa agency in Chivay and I went to the source of the Amazonas and then up to vulcano Mismi. It took us about 2 hours to climb up there and the view was just fantastic.
