I invite you to a great 3 or 5 day trek in the Chimborazo Fauna Reserve! We will hike the flanks of the majestic Chimborazo (6310 m), the highest peak in Ecuador. Also, we will enjoy the view of amazing native fauna and flora, with views of multicolored patchwork fields.
The Chimborazo Fauna Reserve (Reserva de Produccion Faunística Chimborazo, in Spanish) is famous for its herds of wild native camelids: the vicuña and guanaco. And we will see them in their native environment! Also, we will observe llamas and alpacas.
The sight of Chimborazo is among the most stunning in all of the Andes! The high altitude peak of Carihuairazo (5020 m) also lies within the Reserve.
This Reserve was also established to protect the unique páramo grasslands, mixed with peat swamps and glacial lakes.
Rabbits, deers, wolves and a great variety of birds also live here, the majestic Andean Condor included! Besides, the Reserve has a great biodiversity of unique plants!
Also, we will find small forest trees like the ancient Polylepis, also called paper tree. It only grows in protected and quite inaccessible areas. So, they receive a lot of pressures because of their value for firewood and construction.
