Vicuña Trek Lodging:
In this trek we´ll be staying in communitary lodges and refuges, as our aim is to provide social aid, and be inclusive with local indigenouse communities and servces, this allows us to be socially responsible, also with the people that inhabit the ecosistems of the Chimborazo paramos.
