More Info

A great hike to do is to the summit of Imbabura. At 4,630 meters it doesn’t tend to have snow or ice on it so you don’t need technical equipment. This climb is ideal if you are preparing to take on a bigger mountain. Another good hike in this area is the Piñan Trek. This can be done over multiple days and takes place in the middle of the Cotacachi Cayapas Eco Reserve. This is an area of huge biodiversity. You could also choose to hike around San Pablo Lake and see Andean Condors in their natural habitat.
