You MUST do this hikw while in Ecuador! Our guide Wilson was just fantastic and very knowledgable. He knew all the plant, their Latin names, their Spanish names, their Quechuan names and often a little story of how the plant is used in different cultures. He is a true naturalist! He was also very keen at finding and identifying birds for us. The hike itself was easy and beautiful! After the hike were went for a very nice lunch, included in the price. We are still looking at our pictures and thrilled to have spent such a wonderful day exploring Ecuador's beautiful park. Worth every penny!

Great experience and fun, passionate guide. Bundle up because it's COLD! Lunch left a lot to be desired and it is in the late afternoon, so eat a big breakfast.
