About this trip

 El Cajas is a national park located on the northwestern side of the city of Cuenca. It is formed by wetlands from glacial origins with more than 200 lakes. Your visit will start on the lower part of the park called “Llaviuco”, only 30 minutes away from the city of Cuenca. You will hike on an easy pace for about one hour at an altitude of 3000 meters above sea level. You will continue your visit until you arrive to a point called “Tres Cruces” which forms the continental division between the Pacific and the Atlantic Ocean at an altitude of 4135m. You will have a short walk to observe this interesting area and then you will descend and hike for approximately three hours. The difficulty at this point is moderate. On the trail, you will visit a beautiful primary forest and observe the interesting vegetation. A local lunch is included and after this you will return to Cuenca.

We had a wonderful time, even though my boyfriend got sick on the bus ride (motion sickness). The guides and driver were very friendly and helpful. The trip up to the top was tougher than we anticipated, but with the expertise of Claudia and the rest of the team we arrived in good shape at the top. Luckily the snow started to melt when we arrived, so we could see all the nice colors and we also got to visit The Red Valley. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone who is in a good physical shape. We had a great time.
We had a wonderfull trip and a great guide.
