The 3 days trekking in El Cajas National Park will allow us to see the inner and most remote parts of the park, taking us along the ancient Inca Trail (known as Ingañan). Which used to connect the old city of Tomebamba (actual Cuenca) with the coastal plain; passing through several tambos (Inca resting areas) and important lakes such as Luspa and Mamamag, and down through the cloud forest area of Llaviuco. The two days trip is a shorter version of the 3 days one, which picks up the highlights on route.
“El Cajas” is considered a paradise for hikers due to its ecological conservation and natural beauty. On our trip, we do a moderate hike for about 3 hours through some of its 230 glacier lakes, admiring the moorland vegetation (high Andean grassland, like moors at high altitude) with amazing micro flora, some patches of Polylepis primary forests and spectacular rock formations.
