Detailed Product Description
USA, 2002. 301 pp, maps, photos. The most up-to-date trekking guide to one of the world's most biodiverse nations. Includes a thorough introduction to Ecuador and its people. No-nonsense information on what to expect, preparations, and safety. Twenty-nine detailed trek descriptions, with 50 photos, 33 topographic maps, and 27 elevation profiles. Comprehensive appendices, including lists of trekking companies, emergency contacts, and conservation organizations.
 
Ecuador's special appeal to trekkers, day-trippers, and nature lovers can be summed up in one word: accessibility. The country's unique combination of small size, exceptional geographic and biological diversity, and good transportation infrastructure places an outstanding variety of splendid natural experiences within easy reach of the adventurous visitor. Ecuador boasts more than forty-five protected natural areas, including national parks and private reserves, almost all of which offer trekking and day-hiking possibilities.
 
Many longer treks span several natural regions, from the highlands down toward the Amazon jungle or coastal plain. Ecuador receives many visitors (approximately 500,000 a year), but as yet relatively few people come specifically to trek. Unlike well-known trekking venues such as Nepal, the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, and Chile's Torres del Paine National Park, trails in Ecuador are never crowded and offer virtually unlimited scope for exploration. Trekking in Ecuador is easily combined with a visit to the country's more traditional destinations: the Galpagos Islands, colorful indigenous markets, Amazon jungle lodges or Pacific coast beaches.
  • Ecuador is one of the leading Latin American destinations
  • Details 30 amazing trekking adventures for all levels of hikers
  • Includes the history of Ecuador, its people, geography, where to stay and more

Trekking in Ecuador is The Mountaineers Books newest addition to our international trekking series. (Other books include Trekking in Bolivia, Trekking In Nepal, Trekking in Russia and Central Asia, Trekking in Tibet and Trekking Peaks of Nepal.)

Ecuador, appropriately named, literally means equator, the invisible line that divides the Earth horizontally in two hemispheres (North and South). As one of South America's smallest countries, what it may lack in size, it makes up for with an incredible variety of trekking destinations (and other outdoor activities such as climbing and paddling), birds and wildlife.

Thirty trekking destinations from the coastal plains to the central highlands and eastern jungle offer something for everyone.
