Cayambe, Ecuador

From the Alpine Ascents itinerary:
Day 5: After breakfast, we will drive up to 4,286 m / 14,062 ft on Cayambe. Our acclimatization goal will be to hike up to the hut and farther on to the beginning of the glacier (4,877 m / 16,000 ft). It is worth mentioning that sometimes condors can be seen here flying above the Paramo land or the area around the refuge. In the afternoon our private transport will take us back to Guachala honoring the adage "Climb high; sleep low".
