Overview

Ecuador may be small, but its mountains offer an extraordinary range of challenges to climbers and walkers alike. For the experienced climber, the excitement of high-altitude ascents beckons, as well as some excellent new routes. For the less ambitious, there are treks varying from several days along an old Inca Trail to some splendid half-day hikes through national parks, surrounded by open paramo and backed by snow-capped volcanoes. The fourth edition of this established guide has been painstakingly updated by Mark Thurber, who has climbed or hiked all the mountains and trails featured. Some beautiful and hitherto unknown treks have been added, while treks now ruined by roadbuilding have been removed. You'll also find new detailed hiking maps and climbing routes; fully revised climbing and hiking information; and new jungles walks and high-altitude treks.
