Apachita

Description

Apachita is the offering that people used to leave in the old times at the steepest parts of the way up into the mountains. It was a sign of respect. Until today, young explorers build a similar mound of stones when they manage to reach the point at the Cayambe Mountain where the equinoctial line crosses the eternal snow, the only site in the world where this happens.
