We will leave Quito in the morning and drive to the Cotacachi Reserve, near Lake Cuicocha. Then we will hike for about five hours around the lake and enjoy our lunch. We will then head up to our basecamp, have dinner and settle in for the night.
After an early breakfast we will start our hike to Cotacachi, with the beautiful light of the sunrise. It will take us approximately four hours to reach the summit (4,420 m). Then, we will hike down for about three hours to the trailhead. After our descent we will drive back to Quito.
We will camp

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Ecuador.
I fell in love with the mountains at a young age while climbing Ecuador’s volcanoes with my father. I guided in the Andes for 8 years and have been guiding for the past four years in the Northwest United States. In 1997 I expanded his adventure skills by taking on rock climbing. I represented Chimborazo province three times as the Ecuadorian National Rock Climbing Champion.
I completed his UIAGM certification with the Bolivian Mountain & Trekking Guide Association, accredited by the National School of Ski and Alpinism of Chamonix (ENSA), and completed Advanced Alpine and Rock Guides Courses with American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA).
I usually spend some months every year in Ecuador (from October to January, but it varies every year). The rest of the year I am based and guide in Europe.
