Itinerary
Day 01. Departure from Riobamba by car at 8.30 a.m. We drive southeast passing several indigenous villages. After about 1,5 hour we arrive at the Atillo Lakes, some of Ecuador's most beautiful paramo lakes, located at 3500 m. above sea level. These lagunas, which are often shrouded in a mysterious fog, are the starting point of the downhill ride from the high mountains to the low rainforest. This spectacular 47-km. downhill ride on a very quiet road traverses the Sangay National Park. You will cycle from the paramo through cloud forest to the tropical rainforest. On the way you will see numerous waterfalls and enjoy the abundant vegetation with orchids, ferns and mosses. After about 23 km. cycling you will cross a 700 m. long tunnel and then continue the road that winds its way down to the village of 9 de Octubre at 1500 m., where we finish the bike route. Before we return by car to Riobamba, we will visit a viewpoint to enjoy the views of the rainforest with the Upano and Abanico rivers. Arrive at Riobamba about 17.30 p.m.
