Itinerary

Day 1
Hike from Sigchos to Isinlivi

After a scenic bus ride from Latacunga to Sigchos, we start the 4-hour hike to the village of Isinliví.  From 2900 m./ 9514 ft first we hike down to an altitude of 2560 m. / 8399 ft. and then we go up  again to Isinlivi, a tiny and very authentic village, at 2950 m. / 9678  ft. With clear weather you can see the snowcapped peaks of the Ilinizas.  Enjoy the patchwork of fields with corn and the purple colored  flowers of the lupine, known locally as chocho. Along the whole loop we  will encounter this plant, which has edible seeds. If it is the right  season, we can taste the super healthy chochos in one of the villages.  Accommodation in a cosy mountain lodge.
