Description

From Achupallas Village to Ingapirca, the most wonderful Inca archaeological complex of the region, The Inca Trail offers a big opportunity to understand at least a minimum length of the extensive road system built by the Inca Empire.

We are inviting you to this 5-day adventure which starts driving from Quito to Achupallas Village, where we will get ready to this fantastic and unforgettable hiking. And the more exciting part comes in our second day because we will find our first paramo challenge until we get to Tres Cruces Camp after 6 hours of muddy walking.

In our following day we will reach to the highest top of The Inca Trail at 4.400 meters from where we can admire Ozogoche Lakes, 45 lakes and lagoons that form together an excellent panoramic point.

The last two days of this historical adventure will consist in trekking to Ingapirca at 3.160 meters. During the road we will visit the Inca Ruins and its constructions of more than 500 years ago. And after 7 hours of walking we will rest in a hotel to get ready to the most important day: the day you will step the most important archaeological land of Ecuador and feel you are part of the history.

You cannot miss this legendary experience. Get in touch with me and plan this unforgettable trip!

Mountain Guide

UIAGM/IFMGA-ASEGUIM Mountain Guide from Ecuador.

I am a mountain guide, but also a passionate traveler, climber in rock and ice, and photographer. I spend my free time and holidays exploring new destinations, discovering new mountains and cultures.

I have more than 27 years of experience climbing mountains and volcanoes not only in Ecuador, but also in other South American countries such as Colombia, Peru, Bolivia and Argentina, and in the Alps in Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Nepal. I also summited KhanTengri peak in the Himalayas, Aconcagua in los Andes and Mt. McKinley in Alaska. This experiences prepared me to lead expeditions in challenging routes all around the world.

I studied 6 years of Tourism in the University, and followed ASEGUIM courses to become a mountain guide. I’ve also been evaluated by ENSA, and completed first aid courses in the Ecuadorian Red Cross.

I like guiding people from all around the world, and help them discover and enjoy the mountains, while reaching their objectives. I speak Spanish, English, German, Italian, and a bit of Russian.

Unfortunately we were unable to complete any of the climbs due to political unrest in Ecuador. However the guide service took very good care of us make sure we were safe drove us everywhere and make sure we got to the airport safely. If we were to repeat a trip to Ecuador we would definitely use these guides again

End-to-end this was very well organized with good communication. The guide was very knowledgeable and took the climb seriously. He was also easy to talk to, spoke good English and went out of his way to tell me about climbing in the region, the volcanoes and anything else I was I interested in.
