If your purpose is to ascend one or more of the great summits of Ecuador, our trekking peaks are the best way to start a perfect acclimatisation program, or if you just like the contact with nature and enjoy hiking, Andean mountains and lakes are the best scenario.

Our trekking activities and mountaineering programs are rated in two major aspects: physical and technical.
For both of them we divide into four levels: easy, moderate and intermediate.
The levels are assigned depending on the number of walking hours, elevation gain and the technical terrain on the mountain and walking area.
The hiker should cover up to four hours of walking on a marked and easy trail with few slopes up to 35 degrees. Technical equipment is not required. The hiker must be in good physical condition.
Hikes usually extend from four to six hours on a path at times not well marked with one or two delicate steps where a safety rope will be necessary. It is mandatory very good physical condition.
This case generally applies to our mountaineering trips where the effective walking hours exceed six and can be extended up to nine hours round trip. Technically speaking, these activities generally occur in areas covered with snow and glacier where technical mountaineering equipment is mandatory.
Rainiest Months: April and May.
