Fuya Fuya (4,300m) @ Mojanda LakesJanuary 12 in Ecuador
A long steep drive up a cobbled road brought us out to a gorgeous lake ringed by a vicious looking ridge of peaks, and a perfect spot to camp for the night.
We set off on a cold morning - although luckily not as cold as our outdoor thermostat would let us believe, stating - 34C! We wandered over the paramo through some trails (probably animal trails) that got smaller & narrower but we eventually found our way to the main path up and after a fairly steep but short time made it to the top just in time for some incredible views before the clouds started to roll in.
We then drove down to a lovely little hostel where we could cozy up by the fire all afternoon & drink some craft beer!Read more
