May has been a great month for Ecuador Eco Adventure because Trip Advisor awarded us with the 2018 Excellence Certificate due to dozens of reviews for Ecuador climbing expeditions. This month we were also granted permissions to visit Ecuador’s most stunning national parks in the Andes:
Cotopaxi National Park
In this park we can train and acclimatise to the altitude on Volcano Ruminñahui and Sincholahua with our clients who want to Climb Cotopaxi.
Cayambe – Coca National Park
Volcano Cayambe, at 5790 meters tall, is a great beginner mountain for people that want to learn how to climb and adapt, train, and climatize for Ecuador’s highest mountain Chimborazo.
Sangay National Park
This is Ecuador’s biggest national park and was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1983 due to its unique wildlife and paramo wetlands. It is also home to the Tungarahua and Sangay volcanoes as well as the most stunning treks in the Andes mountains such as the El Altar Trek and its multicolored lagoons and crater lakes.
Antisana Ecological Reserve
The world famous “Condor Trek in Ecuador” for which Ecuador Eco Adventure was recommended in the National Geographic Adventure Bucketlist is inside this Antisana Ecological Reserve. The beautiful Antisana Volcano is also located here standing at 5700 mts tall.
Reserva de Produccion Faunistica Chimborazo
Riobamba, the trekking and climbing capital of Ecuador, below the Chimborazo volcano, makes our Hostel Riobamba Base Camp the perfect place to start trekking and climbing in Ecuador. This park is not only home to Chimborazo, but his beautiful smaller brother Carihuairazo as well.
