Riding at five thousand meters altitude

Last month I went with friends to reach the caldera of Galan Volcanoe , at the north of Argentina , over the Andes mountiains,
Around the caldera we reached the 5000mts, it was very hard to us and to the engine of my Grizzly 550, the gas pump sometimes was not able to give fuel to the engine.

The altitude , the hot day and few gas did to the fuel boil sometimes, I add cold fuel from extra thank to solve this problem.

Even I suffered a short faint when we returned and stopped to hydrate at 4800mts .

I can't add videos now, I hope to be able in the future,

That was just cool, very stark landscape and good to see you were carrying lots of gear just in case. You get to that elevation all kinds of things happen that are unexpected. Great video. Thanks, J
