Andean Turtle Tours have years of experience & We are very proud of our trekking routes. We are the only operator doing many of them. They are carefully chosen to show the best of the Ecuadorian Landscape. The treks are also perfect acclimatization before climbing the high glacial volcanoes..MORGAN Have been Guiding Both BBC & Discovery Channel in Papallacta.. For trekking we work in another way from the other operators. The main difference is that we don't camp with tents, we use bases. We generally use rustic but cozy houses with matresses on the floor. Nothing special - but we have toilets and running water. We do this because to Cook & Camp over 3500m, could be absolutely miserable, after a cold trekking day with Hail-Rain & Mud. Its nice to have a place to warm up and dry the gear.. Also safety is very important for us. The trekking areas & bases and the families we stay with are very reliable. For our demanding treks we have to eat well. The families in our rustic bases prepare all our breakfast and dinners. Most of the time you can choose from Trout, Chicken or Beef & of course vegetarian plates.. It saves us many hours, not putting up & down camp sites and cooking every day. In this way we just carry day sacks with box lunches, allowing us to walk long distances without carrying heavy loads of food - tents and other equipment. Since we can walk a lot longer we also will see a lot more. trekking All of our tours will be adjusted to the weather and our clients strength and personal fitness. Also remember that everyone can have a bad day. Our guides are bilingual and know the routes very well, so that they can make the tours longer or shorter, depending on client's requirements. Let us know how many days you like to trek & which days you prefer in the programs.. The trekking time in the program could of course be half an hour more or less. In 2007 we had a military student group doing 23 days of only trekking with us.. They were amazed about the routes and variety we offered... On the treks it is possible to see the great Andean Condor, Dense Polilepis forest, Beautiful Snow capped volcanoes, lagoons & lakes, A massive variety of paramo flora - fauna & landscapes... Always stay flexible and have a positive attitude. Many of these acclimatization Treks & peaks can be done on your own if you are a little experienced. But if a agency has an acclimatization tour - you probably cant do it cheaper alone. We will be happy to provide all information to you about routes and other problems. ANDEAN TURTLE of course has many acclimatization programs to offer.. A good plan would be to spend 2-3 days of trekking with us and then do one or two of our lower peaks before attempting to climb the 5700+ meter glacier volcanoes. The best treks for hiking & acclimatization is around Papallacta hot springs and Cotopaxi National Park. For the hardest hikes you should be able to walk up to 7-8 hours with a daypack. We also do several other treks like Quilotoa - Mindo with easier hiking.. Our trips include bilingual guide, transportation (4x4), food, overnight lodging, and equipment - basically everything except entrance fees. All you need to bring are Warm clothes - Hiking Shoes & Rain gear. Meals are designed around your likes and dislikes - let us know what you prefer beforehand.
