Sunset at Laguna Jahuacocha
Peru
It would had been an easy hike had we taken the beaten path after Punta Yauche at 4800m, instead our guide took us on an ad hoc route that climbs even higher to a view point with superb view of the entire cordillera - no complaint at all as the view really made it all worthwhile but the descent afterwards is surely one of the steepest I have ever made - almost between 60° and 70° degree throughout for almost 500 m ziz-zaging non-stop. By the time I reached more level ground I just had enough stamina left to take this last photo of our campsite for tonight - right against the gorgeous backdrop of the twin lakes of laguna Jahuacocha and Solteracocha at sunset - Jirishanca(6121m) and Yerupaja(6634m) were shrouded unfortunately.

More About South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest. To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case. The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina. Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians. Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight? I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.Text by Steve Smith.
