Day 1 will start with a pick up in Quito and you will be transported through the Panamerica highway to the North until you reach the quiet town of Cayamba.
Your town will then take you to the Hacienda Guachala and reach a small shelter hut up 4.600m. Your guide will slowly get you acclimated to the altitude and you will pass the night with a dinner in a scenic shelter and then sleep in the shelter.
On day 2 you will wake up at midnight to get ready for the ice climb. With good weather conditions you will reach the peak within 6-7 hours. Along the way your guide will point out the breathtaking glaciers that lie on the equator.
Return in about 3 hours to your shelter and then return in the late afternoon to Quito.
