DETAILS

At 8.00 a.m. departure from Riobamba and 1-hour drive to the small town of Guamote. This is a very quiet town but every Thursday it gets crowded with colorfully dressed indigenous people at one of Ecuador’s most authentic markets. There are 3 different market squares: one for potatoes, vegetables and fruits; the animal market with llamas, sheep and pigs; and a third one for ponchos, hats and instant reparation of your clothing. In every street of town you will find all kind of merchandise you can imagine: from household ware to traditional medicine. Our guide will show you around all the squares and streets. On the way back to Riobamba we visit the Colta Lake and Balbanera, the first church of Ecuador.
We have lunch and then return to Riobamba. Arrive at 15.00 p.m.
