What can we say, Cajas National Park is stunning. A few weeks ago we went with some of our friends and we had a blast! It's a pretty good climb to the top; it is not an easy hike but more of an intermediate hike even for the younger generation. In some areas you really need to be careful because there are a few drop offs. Once at the top you can take in the beauty of the Cajas lake and hike around some of the huge rock formations that line the mountain tops. Cajas has lots of natural springs, waterfalls, and even caverns. Cajas Park is about an hour out of Cuenca. This is part 1 of 5 of our trip to Cajas.
