For the high mountains, acclimatization is of vital importance to avoid what we call "altitude sickness". What we try is to provide an excellent acclimatization prior to the ascent of any mountain above 5000m/16404ft.

The whole year is good for mountaineering in Ecuador. However, the weather varies weekly, and it depends a lot on how lucky we are that day for the ascent.

Totally, we provide you all the mountain equipment required that includes: mountaineering boots, crampons, harness, helmet, ice axe, carabiners and shared equipment. In addition, all personal clothing information can be found in the page of each program.

Mauna Expeditions always protects the safety of each one of you. Therefore, all our mountain guides have ASEGUIM/UIAGM certification.

A certified guide is a professional who is dedicated to the development and organization of all activities in relation to different areas of the mountain. Likewise, our team of guides performs different training and teaching tasks so that you can do it in the mountains, so you will be able to correctly develop the different activities such as: climbing, hiking, among others.

Mauna Expedition does not include plane tickets in any of our programs.

We can prepare ourselves in the best possible way and with all the necessary equipment, but always be aware that we are practicing risky sports.

Mauna always fully respects nature and makes the best decisions to ensure the safety of its community.

Of course! The Mauna Expeditions Community has several organized climbing programs so that you can join and meet people at a national or international level. Or in turn, if you require a private tour, we take care of scheduling a program according to your needs.

Depending on the activity that you decide to choose. Since we have family activities that you do not need a higher level of demand, since they are activities to enjoy in harmony. Meanwhile, we have mountaineering activities that require physical and mental preparation.
