5★ Bolivia, Laguna Pastos Grandes 2017-07-01

This was the magnificent camp that didn't quite happen. We had arrived in Boliva a couple of days prior and covered some fantastic terrain to arrive at this superb location. We had settled in, and then it began to snow. We were in a remote location in Bolivia, at 4500m altitude in the Andes, at the beginning of winter, and it had started to snow. We fled. We fled some 20km back to a road which at least carried some regular traffic, and might conceivably be cleared of snow prior to Spring. It was -9℃ overnight and about 10cm of snow fell. map
