Ecuador: Walter & Team Explore Papallacta

We’ve been enjoying the natural hot spring pools in Papallacta, even if it is a bit rainy. Yesterday we took an acclimatization hike up to around 14,500’, but only stayed out for about an hour and a half, as rain, snow, and wind drove us back to Papallacta. We’ve been sleeping at 11,000’ in Papallacta, so we’re definitely acclimating to the high altitude.
Today we’re off to base camp on Antisana, where we’ll set up tents and establish camp for two nights prior to our summit bid. We’re all looking forward to getting deeper into the mountains…
