Excursion to Cajas National Park
Cajas is a national park located on the northwestern side of the city of Cuenca and is formed by wetland from glacial origins with more than 200 lakes.
Our visit will start on the lower part of the park called the area “Llaviuco” only 30 minutes away from the city of Cuenca.
We will then hike at an easy rate for one hour at an altitude of 3,000 meters above sea level (9,842ft).
We then 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).
Then we have a short walk to observe this interesting area where will then descend and perform our main hike at an altitude of 3,900m (12,795ft) for approximately three hours.
The difficulty at this point is moderate where we will visit a beautiful primary forest and will observe the interesting vegetation.
