Itinerary

Cajas is a national park located on the northwest side of the city of Cuenca; it’s formed by wetlands from glacial with more than 700 lakes. Our visit will start on the lower part of the park called the “Llaviuco” only 30 minutes away from the city of Cuenca, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will hike at an easy rate for one hour at an altitude of 3,000 meters above sea level (9,842ft). We will continue our visit until we get to a point called “tres cruces” which forms the Continental Divide between the Pacific and the Atlantic ocean at an altitude of 4,135m (13,566ft), we will have a short walk to observe this amazing view, then we will descend and will perform our main hike at an altitude of 3,900m (12,795ft) for approximately three hours. The difficulty at this point is moderate. On the trail we will visit a beautiful primary forest and will observe the interesting vegetation. Return to Cuenca.

IMPORTANT: We recommend taking warm clothes, a bottle of water and some snacks.

  • We reserve our rights in changing the order of the tours or suspending due to weather conditions or by order from Cajas National Park.
