Ecuador: Avenue of the Volcanoes

Ecuador - Avenue of the Volcanoes, June 2015

4
Ecuadorean people are welcoming and there are relatively few tourists so that on the trekking you are quite likely to see no other tourists on the trail. Learn a little basic Spanish before you go. In Quito you can communicate in English in a limited way, and people aren't snotty about it as in some countries. But a little Spanish goes a long way. I enjoyed the trip hugely. I achieved my objectives of seeing another South American country, seeing the interesting city of Quito and climbing four Andean peaks averaging 15,000+ ft . Yes, there was the disappointment of Cayambe and Cotopaxi being closed to further ascent (by bad weather and bad weather plus eruption respectively) so we never got a realistic crack at those. But you can't plan for this. Big mountains make their own rules and I feel I made the most of the alternative climbs and possibilities we were offered.

My first time with Exodus-very well organised and a great itinerary but first week enjoyment marred by some fairly attrocious weather and conditions. However the second week more than made up for that  and the weather peaked at the right time such that when we summitted Cotapaxi we had the clearest possible sky and hence some great views

Overall it was a great trip, it delivered everything promised in the trip notes and more. Everyone in the group got along very well and we gelled as a team very quickly.  I think the trip is an ideal stepping stone if you are planning to climb higher or more technical peaks in the future.
