Finally we decided to stop off at Chimborazo national park and see the tallest peak in Ecuador, big big mistake. Now we just came from the coast and had not acclimatized ourselves and we went straight up the the base camp about 5000 meters up we both felt ok at first. 1 hour later we stared getting headaches pounding ones and to top it off the sun was setting and it was getting cold. The base camp allowed us to use the kitchen and we made some instant noodles and after decide to hold up for the night in the van. We couldn't sleep all night Jieun was throwing up all night. I on the other hand had a massive headache and was just freezing. I wanted to leave in the night but It was just too dark to drive down that curvy road at night. One thing we got from the peak was clear night and great views of the Chimborazo. As soon as the sun came out we head down high and straight for Cuenca.
|stunning view but the picture brings back a migraine|
