Sunset Hike on Magical Mt. Guaqual Shumi

Watch the sun set behind the Cajas Mountains and the Cuenca lights turn on. One word, three letters describes the views, WOW! Sit on the edge and soak it in. On the hike down the fireflies put on a show for free. Guagual Shumi Mountain (pronounced Wawa Shumi) is said to be a very spiritual mountain and is the wife to Cojitambo Mountain. Guagual Shumi is only 20 minutes east of Cuenca. At close to 10,000 feet the top offers incredible 360 degree views. On the hike up we pass many ancient rock wall. The hike up is moderate and takes about 40 minutes which includes breather breaks (aka photo ops). This is hands down the best full view of Cuenca along with the other valleys that surround the city. The pick-up location for Sunset Hikes is at 3:30 at Bocatti market at the south end of Solano across from Tres Puentes. Sunrise hikes are also available upon request. Date: Monday July 17th. Cost is $40. Limit 4 To reserve your spot and for additional information and photos please visit my website and click on Hikes and Outings then go to the Contact page to reserve your spot.
