The sixth day, over Punta Union (4760m) and with a side trek to Laguna Arhueycocha, camping a little farther near Laguna Jatuncocha.
After breakfast, again with a great view on the mountains, I went up the hill till I found the Santa Cruz path. I followed this up the pass. The pass had a thin layer of snow. Down the otherside and I took a side track to one of the lakes next to the route. To reach this lake you first walked through a forest with red trees, yellow birds and some of the weird rabbits they have here. Finally arrived at the lake with a glacier directly ending in the lake. A very nice side track.
In the end I camped next to a big rock that gave me shelter for the rain and on the sandy area leading to a big lake in the valley.
A big difference between the Santa Cruz part and the days before was the amount of people, I passed several groups and some locals walking with donkeys to carry he stuff for the tourists.
