This outing combines several pleasant experiences that make it recommendable. It takes place in a very beautiful environment, the Mineral del Chico National Park, in the state of Hidalgo. We begin with an enjoyable trek to the climbing zone where we will spend the day. Arrived in our base, we first conduct an equipment check, and explain the use of every piece of equipment.
In October 1972 a plane from the Uruguayan Air Force crashed during a violent storm in a remote place of the Andes. Fifteen of the forty-five passengers died in the accident. In such way began what has been reckoned as the greatest survival story of the XX century, widely known through the book and film “Alive!”. During the following seventy-two days, the survivors, for the most part members of an amateur rugby team, fought to keep alive. Lacking any other source of food, they were compelled to eat the bodies of the deceased.
