These long stays don’t happen too often on our long walks. But it’s a bit of paradise here and why not stay a few days.
Llulu Lama is one of the finest Eco-Lodge experiences I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying. There are numerous mountain day walks. Breakfast and dinner are included and excellent as well as filling.
The first day we did a 4 hour loop hike to Guantualo. I laughed when we took an extra 20 minutes to take a side trail to a “Viewpoint”. It was unnecessary as the views everywhere on this trail were spectacular.
Guantualo is a quiet sleepy village with as always in this area very friendly people.
At the end of the walk, we sat in the spacious but cozy rest area at Llullu Llama and enjoyed Hot Chocolate with milk and a bit of cinnamon.
We later meandered to our cabana and sipped hot tea out on the balcony.
After a lazy hour, we took advantage of our 1 hour session in the spa enjoying the hot tub, dry sauna, and steam room.
Dinner is shared with Christian an Argentinian living in Switzerland with an Ecuadorian girlfriend.
The next day more of the same with a walk up to the mountaintop within view from the hot tub.
And a walk through Isinlivi visiting the local church with its wood hand carved statues by a local artist, Don Bosco.
Usually after 4 days I am anxious to get going but I could just as easily stay another 4 nights.

What a beautiful place to stop off Kevin, & I certainly wouldn’t blame you wanting to stay longer … friendly people, beautiful scenery – a great combination … & good food! You were ‘instructed’ to stop there! It was my birthday (15th) yesterday & I would definitely have celebrated it there. You’re doing a wonderful journey, so I would just go at your own pace & stop when your body tells you to. I always listen to my gut & it’s usually spot on. Thanks again for sharing such beautiful scenes of your incredible journey. How lucky are you! 😇
