About this trip

 Mindo is a mountainous watershed situated in the western slopes of the Andes, where two of the most biologically diverse ecoregions in the world meet: the Chocoan lowlands and the Tropical Andes. In this transitional area — which covers an area of 268 square kilometers (103 sq mi) and ranges from 960–3,440 metres (3,150–11,290 ft) above sea level — three rivers (Mindo, Saloya and Cinto) and hundreds of streams irrigate the landscape, which consists of a patchwork of cloud forests.

Ended up having to switch to Cayambe. Henry was super helpful with all of our questions, getting us from place to place and last minute changes. Herman was our trek leader and was great! You can tell he’s been leading for years , knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. Some of the info up front was vague and not as descriptive as we’d like when you are planing for a such an adventure, so be sure to ask questions if you have them and they will quickly answer!
