What you'll do

This experience is perfect for Instagram! I will come and pick you up at your accommodation at 11 pm to get to the trail and start our hike. Once we arrive at the trail, we will start our hike to the summit, the goal is to get there and enjoy the sunrise. The hike normally lasts between 6-8 hours of beautiful scenery, fresh mountain air and the amazing view of Quito and its surroundings.

I bring along 1 professional DSLR camera to take pictures so you don't have to worry about documenting your hiking adventure. I not only photograph you and your group, but I also photograph the wildlife, flora, and the amazing scenery that you came for! I will take pictures of anything you like.

After the day is over, I will send you all the images through Wetanfer for you to download. The photos are part of your experiences so this are yours to do whatever you please with.

I encourage all levels of hikers and all ages to come! However, hikers should be in good physical shape and should be able to walk at least 4-5 hours on a gradual uphill trail. Too extreme for you? Send me a message and let's work something out! I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing this experience.

Where you'll be

This is once in a lifetime opportunity to see probably one of the best sunrises in your lifetime. If all weather conditions are good we will arrive at the summit before the sunrise and see all of the ecuadors volcanoes, all the city of Quito, you can see Chimborazo, Cayambe, Cotopaxi and even a volcano on the border of Colombia. It's an amazing hike where you get to see Quito as very few have seen it.

This was the highlight of my trip to Quito! Andres was an amazing guide dn photographer - very nice, funny, knowledgable and good company. He picked me up on time, took me on a wonderful hike, both with city and mountain views. The pictures he took were nice and uploaded them the next morning. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone that is passing through Ecuador and wants to explore with someone who is a pro! We had a lot of fun, great conversation, and a beautiful hike. Will definitely try to hike with him again!
