Day wise Itinerary

  • Day 1 : Gear Check and Rock Climbing Wall in Quito. Night in Quito

    Andeanface Staff Will Meet You At 09:00 in the Morning for An Introductory Briefing About the Program. As this is Your First Day At Altitude 2,800 M / 9,184 Ft, We Will Take You Walking to the Rock Climbing Wall in Quito. Once There We Will Do Some Work with Ropes, Teach You Abseiling, Balance Training and Basic Rock Climbing.

  • Day 2 : Pasochoa Hike - 4.200 m / 13,776 ft Night in Quito

    Having had a day to begin the acclimatization process in Ecuador, we now go for the first summit of a volcano. After a short drive we hike out into the countryside towards Pasochoa. This mountain is an ancient and heavily eroded volcano that has been inactive since the last Ice Age. Perhaps one of the main reasons for this excursion is that Pasochoa is one of the few volcanoes where we may see condors flying - the largest flying birds in South America. We return for the night in Quito.

  • Day 3 : Rucu Pichincha Hike 4.690 m / 15,400 ft. Night in Quito

    Using the cable car we go as high as 4.000m / 13,200ft in a few minutes from where we start today´s hike. Pichincha is an excellent second acclimatization hike. Rucu (Quichua for “Oldâ) is one of the three major peaks that make up the Pichincha massive. Quito is actually built on a shelf on the eastern side of this massif.
    The hike is again straightforward and will take 4 to 5 hours (round trip). After this hike we return to Quito for the night

    Otavalo has one of the biggest indigenous markets of Ecuador. You will have a chance to buy local textiles and hand crafts. There is a market on every day of the week. However Saturday is the best. We recommend you to visit first the animal market as it starts very early in the morning.
