PINAN TRAIL 4 DAYS

 

This 4 days trek passes through rich farm lands, cloud forest and paramo. You will enjoy the diverse nature of the country, especially as your guide is not only a mountain guide, but also a naturalist one, so he can provide explanation of both mountains and plants. You will enjoy magnificent panoramas of Otavalo, the surrounding mountains and Cotacachi.

Think of life as if it was hundreds of years ago as you follow part of the old Incan Trail were you will find no other soul for the next 4 days. Also remember the climate is unpredictable so we highly recommend you to bring warm clothing and several layers.
