Trekking Antisana - Papallacta
$2999 per person
2 Days / 1 Nights
DAY 1. Carnero Machay – Tuminguina Lagoon
We'll leave Quito early in the morning towards the lagoon known as the Mica in the Antisana Reserve. The walk begins in an area called Carnero Machay, where we will pack up our loads on mules. At this point, we'll begin a 2-hour hike to the Santa Lucia Lagoon, found at the foot of Antisana with a spectacular view of the volcano. From here, we'll start our lengthy journey to the highest point of the trek at 4,350 meters above sea level. Then, we start our descent to the Mica and set up our camp on the shores of the lagoon. The day ends after about 6 hours of walking.
DAY 2. Tuminguina Lagoon - El Tambo
After a hearty breakfast, the final day of this beautiful trek starts from Lake Tuminguina. We'll hike for about 2 hours, and then descend to El Tambo, located next to the road that goes to Papallacta for our return to Quito. (D / BL)
