This is an amazing ceremony. Every year thousands of people hike up the Ausangate mountain for 4-5 hours up to the Church which is located at the altitute of 4600 meters. Families, children , old people all take part. Some camp up there for 3 days/nights. It is absolutely freezing up there. Hundreds of dancers from various villages take part in the fiesta and dance throughout the day and night. The atmosphere is absolutely fascinating.
