We start at the Cable car for a 3000 feet elevation gain ride on 15 minutes. At the moorlands, we will meet Fredy Caiza, a local farmer that takes his Lamas for the tourists to pet them. He will tell us a little about how is his daily life. As we go trough the path, learning about wildlife, ecology, culture and history, I will tell the ancient stories and legends of the local indigenous (for whom the volcanoes were gods) and the stories of many explorers who walked this same path we are hiking, such as Alexander Von Humboldt and Sir Edward Whymper. We will get to understand how living among volcanoes has shaped the culture of Ecuador's inhabitants. The first hour and half we cross the moorlands, then we will reach the rocky pyramid for a 20 minute traverse, and then the last uphill through the sand-lands and the rocky summit. The hike difficulty is medium, it takes from two to three hours to get to the summit, and one and a half to return. Do not worry! I been here more than a 100 times. We will reach the summit rain or shine! I will provide local snacks like roasted fava beans, corn nuts, raw sugar cane candy, and Sunfo tea.
First, I am in love with nature, and I truly believe that humans can coexist in harmony with it. Second, I am an NYU MSc on tourism, agronomist and licensed tour guide in Ecuador with more than 15 years of professional experience guiding through the all country. I have climbed and hiked almost every volcano in Ecuador and have gone climbing to Peru. As an agronomist, I work with farmers around the country implementing sustainable farming systems for healthier produce, certifications, exports, and more importantly protecting the environment. I manage an organic coffee farm on the western skirts of the Ecuadorian Andes, in the Cloud Forest.

Где вы побываете
Rucu is the Kichwa Word for “old”. Ruco Pichincha is an old extinct crater on an active volcano, 15,033 feet tall, located on the west side of Quito. As a born and raised quiteño, it has been my “back yard” since little. It is the highest spot of the city, with a breathtaking (literally speaking due to the altitude) landscape: the city, the avenue of the volcanoes, the highland’s valleys and the sea of clouds to the Pacific Ocean.
