Beschreibung Mandango Loop - Vilcabamba - Ecuador

The Mandango is a nice hike along the obvious ridgeline on the west side of the valley. The view in all directions is amazing. However, please do not underestimate this hike. The ridgeline is narrow, sometimes only 50cm wide. The trail goes up and down on the rim and balancing together with the wind can get hard. Use walking sticks and you hands for your safety.

The reward of being brave is a breathtaking view into the valleys on both sides and into the surrounding mountains. It can not get any better!

A map and a detailed trail description is available at the Hosteria Izhacayluma. The only downside is that you have to pay 1.50 US$ at the entrance Mandango. But it is worth every cent! Also check after the hike for ticks, Jacques had one!


From Vilcabamba take the road towards Hacienda Izhacayluma. You will get to the entrance of Mandango soon.
Many places in Vilcabamba, we recommend the Hosteria Izhacayluma: www.izhacayluma.com
