The Condor Trek in Ecuador is one of the most famous hikes in the Andes mountains. National Geographic Adventure listed the Ecuadorian Condor Trek in its 2014 Adventure Bucket List and recommended us at Ecuador Eco Adventure to guide you on the trek.
The Condor Trek is a 4 day 3 night heavy-duty hike that begins in the Cayambe-Coca Reserve at Papallacta before heading into the Antisana Reserve until it reaches Cotopaxi National Park. The highest altitude of the trek is 4,500m / 14,763ft (the base of Volcano Sincholagua) in Ecuador’s stunning paramo as it passes the Antisana and Cotopaxi mountains.
You can combine this trip with Climb Cotopaxi Volcano expedition, within the Cotopaxi National Park, is the second largest mountain in Ecuador and its 5,897m (19,347ft) summit makes it one of the largest active volcanoes in the world.
Mount Cotopaxi is the most popular climb in Ecuador because of its stunning views of the crater at the summit and because backpackers with no mountain climbing experience can attempt the climb.
Transfer to the northern side of Antisana Reserve, we start the trek from El Tablon – 6-7 hours trek to Laguna del Volcan where our first camp is set
