Trekking

The Andes have offered, since the time of the Incas, beautiful roads that unfold between forests, moors, wetlands and more. Today it is possible to travel these old routes and also to trace new little-explored roads that keep a surprise in each section.

Trekking of the Condor.- Departing from the Antisana Ecological Reserve, you can see various climatic floors, lagoons, páramos, snow-capped mountains and more during the journey. An effort in which each step is worthwhile. Near Quito. Difficulty: high. Recommended time: from June to September.

The Inca Road.- Also called Qhapaq Ñan, this section, one of the most popular in Ecuador, goes from the Culebrillas lagoon, located at almost 4 thousand meters above sea level, to the fairly well-preserved Inca ruins of Ingapirca, in the south of the country. Difficulty: medium – high. Period: April-December.

Cochasquí – Mojanda.- The route starts at the Cochasquí Archaeological Park, where the ruins of an ancient pre-Columbian astronomical observatory are located, and it advances north until reaching the beautiful Mojanda lagoons. Difficulty: medium.
