All about the trip
Cajas is a national park located on the northwestern side of the city of Cuenca; it’s formed by wetland from glacial origins with more than 200 lakes. Our visit will start in the lower part of the park called the area “Llaviuco” only 30 minutes away from the city of Cuenca. We will hike at an easy rate for one hour at an altitude of 3,000 meters above sea level (9,842ft). We will continue our visit until we get to a point called “tres cruces” which forms the Continental Divide between the Pacific and the Atlantic ocean at an altitude of 4,135m (13,566ft), we will have a short walk to observe this interesting area, then we will descend and will perform our main hike at an altitude of 3,900m (12,795ft) for approximately three hours. The difficulty at this point is moderate. On the trail, we will visit a beautiful primary forest and will observe the interesting vegetation. Return to Cuenca.El Cajas National Park
