From Cuenca we moved to the Cajas National Park to the area Horse Shayana where we say goodbye to our driver. The walk began in the Laguna de Cucheros (height 3950 m) Our naturalist guide will accompany us throughout the tour, which begins with an uphill walk for 40 minutes until knife / blade (height 4080 m) from where we observe the valley Burin (height 4010 m) where several gaps as large Burin Burin boy Ingañan among others; where we dive into the Andean grassland while admiring the natural beauty especially the panoramic view of the sector and the canyon floor where the slope that will feed the Llaviucu Mamamag and lagoons.

The route leads us to the Laguna Mamamag (3.500 m) combining the same walk among streams and a small forest of polilepys and vestiges of pre-Columbian cultures in the Royal Inca Trail. Short stop for a box lunch.

The trail leads to an important vantage point from which we observe the spectacular valley of Llaviucu continue the journey through the forest of San Antonio began the descent to the forest Llaviucu, where the scenery changes dramatically from grassland to upper montane forest.
