Ecuador Volcanoes: Acclimatization Hike on Fuya Fuya

Elevation: 13,986'

Today the team said goodbye to the hustle and bustle of Quito and headed north to enjoy a little more of this beautiful country. We drove for about an hour to a place called Fuya Fuya where we climbed a small vegetated hill to nearly 14,000’ to further our acclimatization. We hiked for about 3 hours on a mostly cloudy day that made for nice hiking temperatures but didn’t provide great views.  The hillside was covered with knee high grass and Achupallas (sort of looks like a large pineapple).  After our enjoyable hike we headed to Hacienda San Luis where we currently are enjoying the beauty of this place and wonderful Ecuadorian hospitality.

Everyone seems to be enjoying this place and are looking forward to heading into the mountains tomorrow.
