Trekking to or from Salinas
- Trekking high into the paramo from Piedra Blanca to Salinas (2 days) is particularly recommended for adventurous travellers.
Hiking through the beautiful countryside along rural "roads" / tracks and paths, you will pass through numerous small villages and hamlets. It's an interesting and breathtaking mountainous trek, particularly on a clear day. Salinas itself is an interesting tourism destination in Ecuador - click here

Piedra Blanca is an alternative and takes less time (possible in one long day) as it's downhill - ask in Salinas for a guide. Take plenty of water with you, and ideally try to take some water purification tablets to purify the local tap water, as there are only a handful of shops selling bottled water on the route.
