A quick trip to high altitude, visit the amazing country of Ecuador with OWA. OWA has been leading mountaineering trips to central and South America for 20+ years, OWA is one of the most experienced and trusted guide service offering trips to this part of the world. We fly into Quito and acclimatize for a few days before heading up Cayambe (18,997ft) then we go back to Quito to recover before our attempt on Cotpaxi (19,348ft).
For 2015 OWA returns to Bolivia to climb 3 amazing peaks, this expedition follows the standard Alpamyo Huayna Potisi and Illimani trifecta. This expedition is lead by OWA director James Faerber a veteran of numerous successful expeditions to the region and other locals!
The fastest mountaineering expedition in show business people! OWA owner James Faerber knows better than anyone that with a busy schedule and responsibilities, you don’t have time to take off for a full-blown expedition. So he developed this trip as a compact version of our Mexico Volcanoes trip. It is a Thursday to Sunday blitz to summit Ixta, an 18000 foot volcano in Mexico. Affectionately known as the “Ixta headache” trip by our guides, time to acclimate is limited, so show up in shape and with plenty of Aspirin!
