Cajas Adventure Hiking and Wilderness Camping

We offer three levels of experience in Cajas National Park. The first is our weekly intro hike to our pristine area, well off the tourist trails. This hike is offered each Monday for up to 4 persons, $10, includes transport and a two-hour hike (involves some climbing, so general fitness and some hiking experience is necessary).

Our second level of experience is a custom designed hike for your group of up to four, scheduled by appointment. Group price is $40-60.

Our third level of experience is offered to a few rugged types who would like to experience wilderness camping in the Cajas. For those interested we would first take a trip to establish the base camp, then return monthly for a 3 day 2 night experience. Your only expense would be a contribution to help cover the costs of our basic camp equipment, heavy tarps, kitchen gear, and firewood. The other requirement would be for each participant to hire or recruit one young "sherpa" to help us carry the gear and firewood up to the camp (we would leave this equipment at the camp area for the season). Your personal gear (tent, mat, sleeping bag, clothes) would be yours to carry when we camp (or you could hire a helper for this also). We would organize our food together, purchase together, and hire a "mule" to carry up to the camp. My idea for the camping season would be October-March, with our first visit to establish the camp in September.

Cajas National Park. next intro hike: Monday, Sept 3, 8-11 AM
