Ecuador Volcanoes: Walter’s Team Enjoys some R&R at Chilcabamba Eco Lodge

We just enjoyed a much needed rest day at the Hacienda, Chilcabamba, a beautiful rural farmhouse/bed and breakfast situated just outside of Cotopaxi National Park. The serene location is perfect for relaxation and recuperation, in preparation for our summit attempt on Cotopaxi. We have enjoyed good views of Cotopaxi and our climbing route from Chilcabamba all day today.
Tomorrow, we’ll pack up and head to the climbers’ hut on Cotopaxi, at roughly 16,000’. An early alpine start on Thursday will see us ascending the steep, glaciated slopes of Cotopaxi, hopefully en route to a successful summit. We’ll keep you abreast of our progress. Stay tuned!
