Trekking tour in Riobamba

Languages: English, Spanish, Kechua

  This is a four day tour where you are first received in Riobamba, we have a small chat about our ancestors, and the Andean vision, how they thought and their traditions, and religion.
After this we arrange all our equipment for camping and trekking, and go to buy supplies for our adventure. followed by a city tour, and a nice traditional dinner in one of Riobamba's best known places.
  The next day we depart early in the morning into the south of my country, near the city of Chunchi, there is a mountain called Punay, in which just recently a professor of a local university discovered a long lost temple, a pyramid which is now considered to be the largest in the world.
We start climbing this hill and as we go along i will describe as much as possible about our ways of living, nature, and meanings of this secret place.
  The view changes in each turn, so taking cameras is a must have in this trip.
Once we are in the top we settle our camp base, you will apreciate the pyramid and how is built, also in the other side from where we started to climb the coast is now visible so a layer of clouds builds up giving an amazing and out of this world sight, the sun sets over the clouds, a spectacular sight.
  The next day we go around the pyramid and start explaining how it was built, the resources, etc..
AS we come down from the mountain we will be ready to take a trip to our next stop in IngaPirca a few hours away, this is the last Inca Monastery to be built in all of America.
  After taking this tour of the ruins, we will head back to Riobamba for a well deserved rest.
The next morning, just to say good bye, we well head to a near small city of guano which is said to be the capital of handcrafts in Ecuador, where we well have another traditional meal of Chorizo.
