We will leave from Machachi (10,170ft/3.100m) early in the morning and drive south through the Avenue of the Volcanoes until we get to the village of “El Chaupi”. We will continue driving up to the trailhead (13,123ft/4.000m), where we start our hike. The first part of the hike takes us up through the small Andean grass. Then we will get on the sandy and scramble section, which leads to Corazon summit (15,702ft/4.786m). We will have lunch during the hike. It’ll take us about 8 hours round trip. Return to Machachi by late afternoon (-/-/-)
