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

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!
