Hiking

Moderate hike to start on the trails in Ecuador. Good conditions in the trail and well maintained. I recommend going counter-clockwise.

Beautiful even with some clouds! Short but difficult hike up (literally up....no switchbacks). Some minor rock scrambles at end. Fairly easy descent and I have bad knees (didn't use trekking poles though they would have been nice). Bring an extra layer....top can be chilly/windy. Not busy on a Wed....we saw 4 other people on our descent. No others on way up. Highly recommend! Close to Otavalo.

Perfect easy summit for first timers! Simple to follow, straight up to the summit, stunning views if lucky enough with weather, loved it, best to find fellow travelers in Otovalo to get up to the trailhead at Laguna Mojanda as it’s a $15 taxi ride.

Great 4 - 5 hr easy hike, beautiful surrounds with snow capped Cotocachi Volcano, and Cayambe Volcano in the distance. Absolutely beautiful, trail is marked whole way and offers benches to rest after the few steep climbs, perfect!

Ever changing lake views with a profusion of unique native flora and fauna. Well maintained trail. We hired a guide to explain the various uses of the medicinal plants.

Extremely hard. They do not believe in switchbacks. Expect to go from 11000 to 14000 in 3 miles straight up. The trail down is even harder. Beautiful at the top.

Very steep but very doable. Summer months are the best for seeing good views

Hiking

Started from the road next to Mojanda Lake. It looks like there are a few spots to begin the hike, but the trail up to the left of the peaks of Fuya Fuya is pretty self evident. My twelve year old and I made it up to the top and back in about 2.5 hours. It was partly cloudy, but we still saw a few snow capped peaks in the distance. Nice hike if you are staying in or around Otavalo.

Great hike above a spectacular lake. Climbs up through the bushy highlands in Ecuador. Highly recommended!
