Description

For 10 day exciting days, I would like to guide you through the sensational peaks populating the Cordillera Occidental in the Andes of Ecuador. Throughout this trip, you will get to see several of the country’s most famous peaks, most of which are still active volcanoes.

Most of the peaks in Ecuador are situated relatively close together in what is known as Volcano Avenue, or La Avendia de los Volcanes. This amazing stretch of peaks, located less than 200 kilometres away from the capital city of Quito, is definitely one of the most wondrous sights in all of South America.

It is my goal during this 10 day hike that you get the chance to really get a sense of how amazing these peaks are. From the highest peak in the country, Chimborazo (6,263m) to Cotopaxi (5,897m) and Cayambe (5,790m), the assortment of peaks you will get to see is absolutely stunning. Several of the snow capped peaks are incredible to behold, no matter the distance from which you get to admire them.

Due to the varied nature of the peaks, and the extended time of this trip, we will operate on an open ended itinerary. There are many different routes to choose from, and I will see to it we hike on the best ones based on several factors, from weather conditions to your ambitions.

This hike will not to be too difficult. Thus why this 10 day trip is accessible to just about anybody. However, we will be hiking a reasonable distance at a steady pace every day, so participants should be in good physical condition.

Hiking through the peaks of Ecuador is a journey you will never forget. And I would be happy to guide you through that journey, ensuring you gain enough incredible memories to last a lifetime. If you would like to join me, please send me a request.

About the guide

guide profile img

Being born in the middle of the Andes, in a city at 2800 meters life is marked by the presence of the mountains from an early age I felt a great attraction for remote and cold places away from the city and thanks to my family heirloom I was walking very young at this.

I started my formal mountain activity at age 15 with my first ascent to the summit of Tungurahua, which was followed by promotion to the different peaks in the country . My other passion has always been art and music which for two years studying at the Faculty of Fine Arts.

Life and its ways led me to leave me immersed in art and anthropology for 4 years during that particular time I started the activity Peru which has given me the opportunity to climb a large number of mountains in the Cordillera Blanca, place and continually been visiting for over 10 years.

At one point in life I discovered that the mountains had given me more than any other activity and experience in my life so I decided to devote to professional and Guidance .

I trained in the School of Guides Ecuador and then continue with my training IFMGA Guide International .

This activity allowed me to share what I love with people who carries the same passion and great satisfaction with them reaching summits and realize dreams, currently I have been guiding for over 15 years, Mountaineering is an experience that helps form realmenter mind, spirit and especially to meet great friends.
