    • Day 56


      December 2, 2019 in Ecuador ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

      We did a two days hike to the Tungurahua Volcano. It's an active Volcano with 5.023m. The first day we went to the Refugio which is located at 3.800m. The Refugio didn't had any electricity so it was a very cold night but with playing UNO and drinking Aguardiente we warmed ourselves a little bit. The next day we got up at 4 am and started the tour up to tue Volcano during the night with flashlights. We saw an amazing sunrise and had stunning views the more up we came. Its very steep and difficult to walk on the volcanic ground. After 4.700 I had to turn as it felt a bit too dangerous for me. Anyway it was an amazing adventure again.Read more

      Baños day 6 - Ecuador

      September 8, 2016 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

      Today I was going to leave Baños, but Cara wanted to climb to the Refuge of the volcano. I could not refuse such a request.

      We took a taxi to the village beneath the volcano and began to him from there. We hiked an hour and a half UPHILL before we got to an information center and were told we should have been dropped off at the info center because now we had another three hours of UPHILL. So we kept at it for another hour or so and when it began to rain, we turned back. We got to an elevation of about 2700.

      When we got back to the village, we got someone to take us back down to town. We got ourselves some hot soup and then bought ingredients for a large salad. After that, we got a mani pedi because after three days of hard physical activities we friggin deserved it.

      We are out salad, packed our bags and hugged goodbye. I was out of there by 12:30, my bus to Guayaquil leaving at 1:00. Cara left for Cotopaxi a few hours later. I hope to meet up with Cara again in Peru.
