This experience is without doubt an epic day in the life of any adventurer and nature lover considering that this super adventure goes through the Cayambe Coca National Park and crosses spectacular places including forests, steppes, an obsidian flux 5 km long, natural hot springs, volcanos, the great continental divide aside from great views of mountains, lakes and waterfalls in an exciting route 25 km long that ends with a well-deserved thermal bath at the hot springs to top it all off.
